Caption: Underwater breathing apparatus. Historical artwork of a 19th-century experimental underwater breathing apparatus known as 'Le Triton'. It was designed in 1808 by Frederic de Drieberg. The diver carries a metal air cylinder on his back, with a metal crown on his head, connected to a pair of bellows. By nodding his head, the diver causes the bellows to suck air from the surface through a tube. Artwork from 'La Navigation sous-marine' (1906).
