Homemade Diving Helmet 1957

From the Forum:  The following info and pictures were provided by Frank and Judy Little.

“These pictures were taken in 1957. Someone had lost a boat motor in the lake and my [Judy Little’s] brother Gerald Pullig used a diving helmet he had made in high school shop to retrieve it. The air was supplied by a bicycle pump top side. The views are from the beach or the spillway toward the lake store.”
