Caption: Firefighters using breathing apparatuses while fighting a fire in a cellar. An early type of firefighting suit and breathing apparatus was invented in 1834 by a Parisian firefighter Colonel Paulin. The pump that supplied fresh air to the firefighter also inflated the suit, preventing the entry of smoke. Glass eyepieces were used to prevent smoke entering the eyes of the firefighters. Artwork from the ninth volume (first period of 1892) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
