EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from Memory Lane Prints, we see the remarkable George May, a 51-year-old blower-up of Frankenstein Lifebelts, conducting his 50,000th test at London airport for B. E. A passengers flying over the sea. The year was 1953 and aviation safety was paramount in an era where air travel was rapidly gaining popularity. With a touch of humor and ingenuity, George May took on the responsibility of ensuring passenger safety by testing these life-saving devices. As he stands proudly beside his creation - the Frankenstein Lifebelt OPS - one can't help but admire his dedication to protecting those who ventured into the skies. The photograph captures both the unusual nature of George's profession and the pioneering spirit that defined aviation during this time. It serves as a testament to human innovation and determination in creating safer modes of transport. While not much is known about George May beyond this moment frozen in time, it is clear that he played an integral role in shaping aviation safety practices. His tireless efforts ensured that passengers could embark on their journeys with peace of mind. This image transports us back to an era when air travel was still relatively new and filled with excitement. It reminds us of how far we have come in terms of passenger safety while also honoring those unsung heroes like George May who worked tirelessly behind-the-scenes to make it all possible.
