Paper Coat Sheds Rain — Folds Up Into Small Package, 1931

Two distinct developments were represented in a new type of rain coat recently introduced in Hollywood, 1931. The first was in the line of convenience, the coat being collapsible, so to speak, into a small compact package that can be carried in the pocket. The second was in material, paper replacing the customary rubberized fabric.

Buddy Rogers, movie star, wearing new paper rain coat recently introduced in Hollywood. When not in use, the cape can be folded up and carried.

When worn, the coat resembles the capes commonly worn by policemen. Special treatment of the paper prevents the coat from falling to pieces or developing leaks in a downpour. The photo shows Buddy Rogers, movie star, garbed in one of these new coats. Although it wasn’t raining, it might start any minute, and Buddy was ready.
