Half-length portrait of William Henry Phillips, whose 'Patent portable fire annihilator, for extinguishing fire by gases and vapour, affording a means of saving life and property when water may be unavailing' was exhibited at the Great Exhibition of 1851, winning a prize. This was a device that used a chemical reaction to produce a cloud of carbon dioxide to smother a fire. A motion was presented to Parliament that every government vessel should have an Annihilator. However the Fire Annihilator Works, at Battersea Fields, burned to the ground in 1852, and the business failed. P.T. Barnum invested in the company that bought the American patent, but after some unsatisfactory trials, that company also closed, although the Great American Showman still believed the invention was a valuable one, writing about it in his autobiography.
