Fun with Dry Batteries

Fun with Dry Batteries
"Fun with Dry Batteries. Price 10¢. For the Amateur Electrician. "

Title page: Fun with Dry Batteries: A Handbook of Things to Make and Things to Do with Dry Batteries. Published by the manufacturers of Eveready Long Life Batteries.

From an ad for the book in Popular Mechanics, Dec. 1933, advertising section, p. 6A: "Electricity. Get this 96-page book. Boys--and grown-ups, too--will find 'Fun with Dry Batteries' a most instructive and entertaining little book. Make electro-magnets, bells, buzzers, signals, lights, secret locks, electro-plating outfits, telegraph instruments, and numerous amusing electric toys. Has simple, illustrated description of principles of electricity--and of dry batteries in particular."

"Electrocute your ant farm, then move on to small mammals and end with your younger siblings. Hours of fun!"

Well, I was thinking that I'd try to make an "electro-plating outfit" if I were going to attempt to have fun with a dry battery! 8-)
