Summary:
Caption "Water glass is built into this paddleboard which is the invention of Captain Charles H Watkins, Chief of the Santa Monica California Life Guards. With the plate glass fitted into the bottom of the hollow paddleboard and an eye piece fitted to the top it can be used for locating lost anchors and cables and for any work requiring a quick search of the bottom at a depth of up to 30 or 40 feet. The new device is expected to be adopted in many quarters for individual sight seeing of submarine gardens. the inventor's son is shown demonstrating the new paddleboard with its all seeing eye."
