    The paper deals with gamma-ray radiography from a rather practical standpoint. A brief history of the development of the practice is included. The use of radium as the accepted source of energy, and the way in which radium behaves are discussed in a brief, and yet sufficient, manner for the purpose. The technique of gamma-ray radiography is covered in a complete manner. Many examples of the use of the method are cited. A Selected Bibliography is included.
