Abstract:

This collection of Gentieu's photographs constitutes the most important surviving visual record of the Du Pont Company's Hagley Yards during the late 19th and 20th century, when the manufacture of black powder peaked and began to decline with the development of high explosives. Subjects represented include the Du Pont Powder Yards on Brandywine Creek and other company buildings on that site, Du Pont Family homes (including Windmar, Rokeby, Pelleport, Swamp Hall, and Eleutherian Mills, which was converted to a workers' club during Gentieu's years of employment), Du Pont Company workers and their homes and families, Delaware School Districts 23 and 75, Wilmington-area churches (incl. Mt. Salem and St. Joseph's), and probably the only extant images of the aftermath of late 19th century black powder explosions on the Brandywine. Gentieu was also apparently involved in arranging the company's trade displays of shooting powders at the annual Sportmen's Expositions held at Madison Square Garden in New York.
