    What can I say? This looks like a million other things besides a facial! I’m as crazy about the cape as I am about that bandaged up fish face. Also pretty crazy about the beautician’s satin fashion. And could they have stuffed any more (fantastic) junk into that tiny room?!

    The sign on the wall says “electric mask”. I will assume it had little electric impulses that stimulated your face into stunning beauty and agless perfection. Fun times in the age of that new-fangled electricity. Just don’t use near water…

      I’m just wondering if the electrodes are hidden in the fish mask? Probably, but even the US in the 30’s and 40’s had some amazing beauty aides.
