Lady in Gasmask

Picnic in a gasmask

Sometimes we get lucky in our search for photographs – this image of a lady in a gasmask was in a large collection of photos in a plastic shopping bag that we bought in Camden market a few years ago.

Probably dating from the 1940’s it possesses a glimpse into a world – strange yet normal.
The image could easily be a still from an early sci-fi film. We have no information on the identity of the sitter but the image provides a great start for our work.

    What a great find. Her pose suggests that sitting out in the countryside in a gas mask is completely normal.
