Share this:

AUSTRIAN physician Stefan Jellinek founded The Electro-Pathological Museum in 1936. He provided the content seen in the book Elektroschutz in 132 Bildern (Electrical Protection in 132 Pictures). Death and electricity went hand-in-hand. But with this book, you would be forewarned.

If you can identify all the contraptions, let us know.
