1940's X Ray Beauty

Yes - isn't science marvellous. Now a woman can be x-rayed into radioactive beauty nirvana. Back in the 1930's and 1940's, the new radiology invention was used - a little over used perhaps, for shoe fitting with the Shoe Fitting Fluoroscope.

Shoe Fitting - X Ray Fluoroscope.

This film shows a woman 'exposing' herself in the interests of science for the new x-ray motion picture. Later we see a woman getting her ankle bones zapped supposedly to aid in the design of an accelerator pedal. That certainly should have nicely advanced her osteoporosis in the years to come.
