Four divers wearing some weird-looking DIY diving gear

We can only hope that they didn't actually get into deep water in those!

Photo via Vintage Everyday

One look at the crude, make-shift diving helmets that these guys are wearing is enough to make us say, “they can’t be serious!” These divers from the 1940s seem to have gone crafty and turned some boiler tanks into diving helmets, complete with attachments for oxygen! Also, are those air pumps at their feet?

Seriously though, I hope they didn’t jump into the depths to test their DIY diving gear out!
