The notice said 'This is a rare example of an early diving suit.'

What it didn't say is that these diving suits were rare because they were so heavy most of the men who ventured into them never made it back to the surface. smiley - fish

'These prototype diving suits were difficult to climb into and in order to wear them operators had to don the suit in a special order. They would put their left leg in, take the left leg out - in, out, in, out and shake it all about. They'd climb up inside it and turn around, and that's what it's all about.'
