A Poule de Luxe relaxing on the seashore Featured Print

A Poule de Luxe relaxing on the seashore

A well-provided-for woman relaxing by the sea with EVERYTHING she could ever want from a hairdryer to an inflatable crocodile! There are several ways to translate Poule de Luxe into English, from fancy chicken to more standard translations including trophy wife, gold-digger, fancy pants, diva, high‑maintenance girlfriend, or, in a more pejorative sense, a high-class hooker'! Date: circa 1920s

Students with underwater house equipment, Malta Featured Print

Students with underwater house equipment, Malta

Students and equipment connected with an underwater, inflatable house on a beach in Malta. One student is being fitted with diving gear. The house was anchored to the seabed, some 50 feet deep, in Paradise Bay, off the coast of Malta. It was equipped with lighting, telephone and immersion heaters with which the inhabitants could make hot drinks. It was constructed by teams of engineers and diving enthusiasts from Imperial College of Science and Technology and Enfield College of Technology. It was 9ft long and 6ft wide, constructed from rubberised material on a steel frame, and weighed around 500 lb. The team leader was David Baume who hoped it would be the first of a series of low cost underwater living spaces from which scientists could explore the seas. David and some other team members were able to spend a night 30 feet below the surface. The following day a severe storm caused the house to collapse. Date: 1969
