Kicking the bucket to keep alive and well! 1914 Featured Print

Kicking the bucket to keep alive and well! 1914

Interestingly this artical was published on April fools day in The Sketch, 1914, you can come to your own conclusions! Latest primitive life-saving device invented by a German engineer, Herr Heinrich. Water-tight canvas with gloves suit, air entering through a tube at the top of the head with porthole to see out. Man or woman using the device stands in a bucket which is filled with water and keeps the occupant upright. Sufficient food and drink can be taken aboard to last for a very considerable while; and signals and a revolver can be carried to attract help. Attached to the body are ropes to which two or three people can hold to keep them afloat.
1914
