I believe I saw a date for this small catalog of 1921, but I can't find it again. As I suspect some know, Charles Macintosh developed the first widely practical rubberized clothing by impregnating cloth with rubber that had been dissolved in coal-tar naptha.

Sometime later Goodyear Rubber exploited Charles Goodyear's invention of vulcanized rubber to use it in a process, which judging by this brochure was similar to Macintosh's, to make a broad line of clothing the describe as "weatherproof."
