RUBBERS FIT IN UMBRELLA (Mar, 1935)

RUBBERS FIT IN UMBRELLA

Completely equipped for rain is the user of a two-in-one umbrella containing a pair of rubbers within its handle. Tightly rolled to occupy little space, they are withdrawn in a jiffy as shown above. When the handle is in place, as below, the umbrella appears to be an ordinary umbrella, in every way.

    Yeah, they mean galoshes or slip-on shoe covers for rainy days, not erasers or condoms.

    At least, I *think* that’s what they mean.

    @Toronto Oh! I see! I thought condoms but that is more of a 60s thing really. lol

    yeah…language change can mean all the difference…

    …wouldn’t surprise me to find the items with the other use of “rubber” in a Japanese umbrella though.
