• Short Summary

    Women try on gas masks in a shop in Sweden.

  • Description

    Stockholm, Sweden.

    In a city street we see a shop with a display of gas masks in the window. Two women go inside; one of them is helped to put on a gas mask by the gentleman at the counter. She turns to look at her friend and another woman - they laugh. The friend is helped on with a mask.

    Commentator remarks that "gossiping in one of these dinky new masks is quite an art". Funny item with a sinister undertone!
