"Smelly" Kelly and His Super Senses

How James Kelly’s Nose Saved the New York City Subway

New York City’s dark and dank subway tunnels are James Kelly’s specialty. In this true story, James, an Irish immigrant in the early 1900s, makes a name for himself by detecting hazardous leaks and preventing scores of explosions, all through keen observations, an overactive sense of smell, and a strong work ethic. Glowing fluorescent colors pop in the dimly lit labyrinth as “Smelly” Kelly comes to the rescue, again and again.
