Seems to me there are more urgent things than typing during which you'd need to see what you're doing, like surgery.

...or like moving to an air raid shelter.

Hey, you never know when you’re going to be inspired to hammer out that novel…

Predicting air raids was like predicting tornadoes -- you had to sound the alarm if there was any possibility, and even when one hit, 99% of the area was generally unaffected. Going to an air raid shelter, waiting for the all clear, and wandering back to work took hours out of the day. This let people stay at their jobs, keeping up production, and if, by chance, their building was hit, well, they're just typists.

I still think my favorite gas mask was the one for children that looked like Mickey Mouse's face. A prototype was made, but it never went into production. It was on display in Akron, Ohio - the Rubber City. Ah, city nicknames...

Hm, @Patrick, gas masks for children reminds me a little bit too much of "Are you my mummy...?"
