"Take a deep breath... Hold it..."

"WW1, France: radiographer captured on film in protective clothing and headpiece. Photograph by H. J. Hickman, ca. 1918.

That would be lead clothing, and it would feel like it weighed a ton. Send this photo to any of your medical friends who complain about having to wear a short lead apron when portable films are taken.

Via Uncertain Times, where there is something interesting every day.
