1939 Snow Cone Mask, Snowstorm Wear, Montreal Canada

Introducing the Snowstorm Mask, a plastic cone shield designed to protect Montrealer's delicate faces from the ravages of icy Quebec snowstorms - developed in 1939.

Apparently one of History's strangest inventions !~ The photo was first repaired, mainly water ( snow ? ) damage marks, I then toned it brown and added colour, when I added a full Orton effect it seemed to put the life back into the photo and viola.

    Hi Phil another master piece ! Love love it . Now I never heard the cones but then It must have been a Canada invention :-) Spectacular image xoxo

    Hi Mani, thanks for dropping by, it seems a Canada Invention bites the dust here !
  3. Manikin Manikin, 1 year ago
    I always love your work Phil and it should be in a gallery xoxo

    Great image Phil! This invention, alas, does not look terribly robust in the face of the winds of a Montreal Canadian winter.....I can see why it may have fallen by the wayside. Sadly, Canada is known for losing inventions that are good ones too....

    I've been to Montreal several times and easily see this as a frog invention. Probably still make & sell them there. They're still trying to revive Bill 101 aren't they?LOL Yeah, lets turn the French side of the cans out in Eng. speaking Provinces. Go figure.
