Sunbathing Bubble

This looks like it would roast you to a nice golden brown.

Human Hothouse: For comfortable sunbathing in the city or during cold weather, a California firm offers a Plexiglas bubble which lets in ultraviolet rays but keeps out sand, soot, and wind. The Fabor Sunbathing Capsule is 7 feet long and measures 3 feet wide by 18 inches high at the shoulders; it tapers to 30 inches by 15 inches at the feet. Hooded ventilators at the four corners provide fresh air. Fabor Robison Productions, Inc., of Burbank makes it and sells it for $67.50.

The smog was worse in Mexafornia back then I supose. Anyhow the price in today's $$ would be $526.44.

How DARE you imply that we've got a pollution problem and we welcome our Syrian brothers with open arms!

I thought of that too FBS. Sleeping Beauty would look fabulous in her pink gown with a nice dark tan too!

Do we all remember bikinis with the built in belt?

I'd like mine (bubble) with tinting, like sunglasses, but that would probably defeat the purpose.

I remember when we drove into the mountains, you could look down on the the brown blanket of smog at around 3000 ft. Later in life we would have to go up 5000 ft., or more.
