Life Magazine Images of Higgins Armory

I’d pointed folks to some Life Magazine photos of Worcester State Hospital, and I’d now like to point out some photos of Higgins Armory.

You can find a bunch at the top of this page and at the bottom of this page (where you can also see plenty of pictures from a sculpture exhibit at WAM).

Of especial interest are pictures like this and this, which will leave you reaching for your white gloves and wanting to give the folks a good talking-to about how their hands have oil and salts that can permanently damage the armor.

(You may also enjoy this Higgins photo from — of all places — the Weekly World News, and this Rotarian article from 1956.)
