Steel Barrel Tested in 200-Foot Drop, 1933

An eighteen-story plunge in Detroit, Michigan, tested the strength of a new-type beer barrel in 1933. Made of steel, the barrel was filled with water and carried to the eighteenth floor of a hotel.

It would really suck if someone picked that moment to walk out to their car.

Here it was dropped from a window, plunging more than 200 feet to a hard-packed gravel parking space at the rear of the building. The barrel is said to have survived the shock without springing a leak, although the side was badly dented.

In a second test, another barrel was not even dented by the long drop, according to the manufacturer.
