Face Cone Fashion Offers Protection from Snowstorms

When you’re out in a snowstorm, and the cold winds are whipping your face and stinging your eyes… just strap on your face cone and you’re good to go! This is a real mask worn in 1939, modeled here by two Montreal women. The aerodynamic design protects your face from even the harshest winds and snow. Just be careful not to poke anyone’s eye out. Ha, one of history’s many inventions that did not stand the test of time.
