A Flu Mask Modified for a Smoke, 1919

A photo of a flu mask touted by Popular Science magazine during the 1918 pandemic. It has a hole for smoking – but not for exhaling the smoke. Popular Science was satirizing the use of masks, which they said were scientifically ineffective.

(From Popular Science, May 1919)
