Drager smoke rescue mask
The apparatus pictured, devised in 1910 by the Drager Company of Germany, operated in a similar way as the Siebe-Gorman self-contained devices. Draeger breathing devices and other safety equipment grew so popular in the mine rescue business that the word "draegerman" eventually became a synonym for an underground rescue worker.
