WW2 ‘Blackout’ poster by Lady Wulfrun on Flickr.A wartime cigarette card from Wills, the makers of Capstan, Woodbine, Star and Goldflake tabacco products. This comes from their ‘Air Raid Precautions” set, and explains how civilians should properly remove their gasmasks. The caption on the back of the card reads:
The Civilian Resporator - How to remove it.
The picture shows the RIGHT way to take off a civilian respirator. This should be done by slipping the head harness forward from the back of the head. It is important the respirator should be taken off in this way. The WRONG way of to take it off is by taking hold of the metal box containing the filters and pulling the face piece off over the chin. By this method there is a danger of bending the transparent window. If this window is cracked, the respirator is useless.

Rachael Yamagata - Accident

literaryjukebox:

No one’s fated or doomed to love anyone.

The accidents happen, we’re not heroines,

they happen in our lives like car crashes,

books that change us, neighborhoods

we move into and come to love.

Tristan und Isolde is scarcely the story,

women at least should know the difference

between love and death. No poison cup,

no penance. Merely a notion that the tape-recorder

should have caught some ghost of us: that tape-recorder

not merely played but should have listened to us,

and could instruct those after us:

this we were, this is how we tried to love,

and these are the forces we had ranged within us

within us and against us, against us and within us.
