Girl Exhibits Safety Gadgets (Jul, 1939)

Girl Exhibits Safety Gadgets
DENORE DOLIN prepares herself for all sorts of emergencies by wearing some of the safety devices exhibited at a safety show in New York City. Around her neck is a felt filter respirator. A transparent mask protects her face. Steel plating encases her shins and feet. The toe-guards, capable of withstanding a falling three hundred pound object, are used by workers in ice plants and steel mills.

    The toe guards can withstand a falling three hundred pound object from how high? :)

    At first glance, that respirator looks like some kind of alternative brassiere.

    I find her strangely alluring.

    Myles, it seems less like a toe guard and more like the shoes from a suit of armor.
