Time Capsule: Classic Snoring Remedies (Life Magazine, 1949)

"Snore Stoppers" (Life magazine, 1949)

Here are some fun pictures from a Life magazine article called “Snore Stoppers,” from their February 28, 1949 issue. As you might have guessed by now, it focused on a variety of gadgets and tools designed to stop snoring, one of mankind’s great remaining scourges. All photos by Herbert Gehr.

    Looks like snoring devices have been around for an eternity. Its the same now as it was back then. No proper cure, only devices to help you stop snoring. I like the Snore Cuff. Great name for a snore stopping device.
