Cast Iron Shallow Water Diving Helmet – Snead & Co
Cast Iron Shallow Water Diving Helmet – Snead & Co This pattern was most probably prior 1935.
Therefore it was superseded by this second style, shown with the rims joined together , cast in one piece. It has the same large viewing aperture. The air is fed in at the top front just above the bulging ‘ frog eye ‘ window. It also weighs 56lbs.
A simple design with nothing to go wrong except perhaps a broken window.
This shallow water helmet is generally worn without a suit in warm waters. The perspex window is kept clear by the air which is constantly played on to it from the inlet above; but this proved disconcerting to some divers. The handle on the top is square section thus making it rather uncomfortable to carry.
Lettering on the front reads ‘ Snead Co Jersey City NJ Patt Pending ‘
