Notes: Salvador Dali drew on his memories of the popular Currier & Ives by incorporating a miniature version of the 1854 "The Life of a Fireman" into his print. The thick white vertical lines represent water spraying from a hose, bright orange and yellow for the fire, and included a large moth drawn to the light and heat of the flames.
