Shatter-Proof Eyeglasses Tested, 1936

In 1936, safety glass for spectacles passed a successful test in London, England. Pounded with a hammer, the glass was marked with myriad lines but remained intact. The shatter-proof eyeglasses are said to be especially recommended for athletes engaged in such strenuous sports as tennis, football and baseball.
