First-Aid Booth (Nov, 1949)
THE Germans have designed a street first-aid booth which seems to have everything. Well, practically everything.
First, naturally, there’s a first-aid kit and a folding stretcher on wheels. This is so light it can be pushed by a child. Then, there’s a public telephone and a fire alarm. For the policeman on beat, there’s a special wire to the station and on the wall is a mirror for last-minute grooming. On top of the booth is an illuminated clock and a blue light which blinks if somebody wants a policeman.
If plumbing facilities had been available there’d probably be a kitchen sink, too.
