This image of a bolt was used in numerous publications of the time to mark the modernist and progressive development of industry in Palestine, HaTa'assia, vol. 7 (November 1941).
It was made at a time when it was forbidden to photograph the horizon of Tel-Aviv because of possible attacks by enemy aircraft. The image with the fencing was also used as a cover for the magazine HaTa'asia, probably in 1947. Using the device of placing a piece of fencing on the printing paper Himmelreich then enlarged the bolt, and made his exposure - thus protesting against the British curfews on Tel-Aviv.
