Steed and Mrs. Peel out for a night?

Funny, I just saw an article about Bob Newhart and how his show was the first TV show to show a married couple in bed together, as opposed to the arrangement in the ad just below the article in the link.

Not the Newharts. Not the Munsters.
From IMDB:
Contrary to popular belief, The Munsters were not the first couple on TV to share a bed. It was real-life couple Mary Kay Stearns and John Stearns on their show Mary Kay and Johnny (1947) in the late 1940s.
Which is still a US centric answer.

My guess on the mystery illustration: costume for a chorus line.

I'm not even sure what "blackout protection" means.

So I'll just go ahead and guess: The costuming for one of those creeps in Clockwork Orange?

I mistook the dickey for two face masks and guessed it was for an outbreak of influenza. There were some during the Victorian Era who thought diseases were spread by dust, so everything being white would let them see it and brush it off before it had a chance to settle in.

Oh, well -- when I do happen to know one of these, it's usually because I'd chanced across it recently rather than my having great deductive skills.

Ooh, mindful! I hadn't thought of Clockwork. I can see McDowell wearing those spats and top hat, twirling the cane ...

I thought directing traffic. Admittedly I didn't know why the cane and umbrella.
