This historic 1967 photograph, depicted laboratory technician, Bonnie Smith, as he was loading a Hull lyophilizer. Lyophilization, otherwise known as freeze-drying, prolongs the lifespan of perishable materials, so that they may be shipped, and stored for a much longer time, often without the need for refrigeration.
