This Skirt Should Be Pressed With Steam (Feb, 1940)
This Skirt Should Be Pressed With Steam
Here’s a new skirt capable of turning either the eye or an 80,000 kilowatt turbine. The pretty girl is shown wearing $5,000 worth of General Electric turbine buckets. Though a bit impractical as skirt material, these steel buckets, also known as blades, are important parts of huge electricity producing equipment. They function like the blades of a windmill in harnessing energy of scorching steam shot through some turbines at 1,200 miles an hour speed, 12 times greater than that of the average hurricane.
