The Frozen Art of Diving

The UK and parts of Europe have been frozen this week so I thought now was a good time to share this Beano cover with you.

I thought Biffo's nose snorkel, as previously featured in The Art of Snorkelling,  had been invented in 1970 by David Sutherland but here it is in 1965, drawn by the strip's original artist the great Dudley D. Watkins (Click for a larger image).

The Soppy Art of Diving

Warning! It's a sugary overload in this post as we look at a collection of valentine cards. Venture beyond this point at your own risk!

I'm assuming this first example was for students to give to their teachers. Not something that would be encouraged today!

Just a quick handful of snorkel based images.

This Valiant cover is by Mike Western (Click for larger image).

It didn't cost a lot to go snorkelling in1963!
