Constructing the Star Theatre, New York City, 1901
Note: The original film reel in fact showed the building being destroyed, but audiences at the time preferred to see it played backwards, and so do I.
A suit built in 1960 by the Republic Aviation Corporation solved the problem of what “the well-dressed man” would “wear for a stroll over the airless moonscape.” The Oct. 16 photo spread promised that the outfit would have its own oxygen supply and that its tripod legs would “enable its wearer to rest by sitting on a perch inside.” The wrench hands were presumably for securing loose screws.
