    Notice how tight the dresses would have to be at the ankles to prevent unintentional antigravity upskirts…

    Google ‘Edison Attacks Mars’.
    Electrical Airships, disintegrator pistols, spacesuits…

    Truly, Edison bwas a man before his time.

    Punch was a humor/satire publication, so for those who think that Edison really came up with magic flying underwear, I’m pretty sure this was just another joke. It’s kind of like how people today sometimes think that “news” stories in The Onion are real and true.
