... romantic atomic interlude!

... amazing the number and extent of attempts to market and cash-in on Cold War fears. Perhaps these were re-purposed high fashion raincoats (they do have that Mary Quant feel). There's more than one old Civil Defense film that shoes manly-men utilizing the basic yellow 'slicker' rain-gear as protection against fallout dust. But that's only quicky, minimum, safety against getting the stuff on your skin or breathing it in. Leave your rain-gear outside the shelter and clean-up good after foraging for food and fighting Zombies. Hmmm - maybe that cardboard box was an emergency supply of toilet paper (wouldn't even fit a decent supply of Scotch!).
