Rain Goggles for Race Drivers From the 1930s

Invented by Mr L. A. C Davoran in the 1930s, the goggles are equipped with wipers powered by an external fan. In an open car, the fan would start moving at about 15 miles per hour, putting the tiny wipers in motion and clearing the water from the lenses.
