TINY GLASSES SHIELD EYES FROM GLARE (Feb, 1936)

I don’t really see how these do anything other than make you look like a cool character from a Terry Gilliam film.

TINY GLASSES SHIELD EYES FROM GLARE
To reduce the blinding glare of approaching automobile headlights, a novel eye shield has recently been introduced. Strapped to a band worn about the head, a metal frame extends from the forehead and holds two ovals of amber glass in front of the eyes, where they are normally just out of range of direct vision. A slight turn of the head places the glass ovals between the eyes and the rays of oncoming car lights.

    It seems like there’s been more but a search here for “Headlight glare” reveals just 6 devices for dealing with this severe early 20th Century problem.
    All seem equally bizarre and were never widespread.
