The ‘New Look’ in Hot Water Bottles and Ice-Packs, 1948

January 1948: The B.F. Goodrich Company of Akron, Ohio unveiled the “new look” in hot water bottles and ice packs for folks suffering from sore throats, sinus pains, and New Year’s hangovers.

The wearable device consisted of a helmet-shaped ice cap, a hot water bottle in mask form for sinus pains and a wrap-around ice bag for the throat.

Modeled by Margaret Bender.
