Old diving suit / Viejo buceo / Vieux costume de plongée / Velho traje de mergulho

In English:

Oldest surviving diving suit.

In was sunny summer day when we made a short road trip from Oulu to Raahe (in Swedish Brahestad). Its distance from Oulu is only 75.5 kilometers / 47 miles to the south and from Helsinki 603 kilometers / 375 miles to the north. Raahe is a small town on the western coastline and there is not so much to see, except one thing, which is unique in the whole world – Oldest surviving diving suit! By surviving, I mean continuing to live or exist. Think about it.

It has nice nickname – Old Gentleman and with good reason. Old, because it is from early 18th century. From what material it is made out of? Well, mostly made of calf leather. Before showing my photos, you probably want to know what it looks like? Think that, You would see for the first time alien from the outer space, describes it best! After my photos, I give link to the page of Museum of Raahe, which tells thoroughly about Old Gentleman. If You want to meet personally Old Gentleman, then You meet him in the Crown Granary in Raahe.

P.S. Old Gentleman has visited to Lisbon 1998, also in Philadelphia and London.

En español:

El más antiguo buceo sobreviviente.

En era día soleado de verano, cuando hicimos un corto viaje por carretera desde Oulu a Raahe (en sueco Brahestad). Su distancia de Oulu se encuentra a 75,5 kilometros / 47 millas al sur de Helsinki y 603 kilómetros / 375 millas al norte. Raahe es una pequeña ciudad en la costa oeste y no hay mucho a ver, excepto una cosa, que es único en el mundo entero – ¡el más antiguo buceo sobreviviente! Al sobrevivir, quiero decir con esto que continua viviendo o existiendo. ¡Piénsalo!

Tiene un bonito apodo – Viejo Señor y con buena razón. Viejo, claro que si ya es de principios del siglo 18. ¿De qué material está hecho? Bueno, es principalmente hecho de piel de becerro. Antes de mostrar mis fotos, es probable que vosotros quieren saber ¿cómo se ve? Piensa que, vería por primera vez un extraterrestre desde espacio exterior, lo describe mejor! Después de mis fotos, me voy dar un enlace a la página del Museo de Raahe, que le dice completamente todo sobre el viejo caballero. Si usted quiere conocer personalmente el – Viejo Señor, Usted puede encontrarlo en el granero de Corona en Raahe.

PD. El – Viejo Señor ha visitado a Lisboa 1998, también en Filadelfi y londres.a y Londres.

En francais:

Le plus ancien costume de plongée survivante

C’était un jour ensoleillé d’été quand nous faisions un court voyage de route de Oulu à Raahe (en suédois Brahestad). La distance de Oulu est seulement 75,5 km / 47 miles au sud et à Helsinki 603 kilomètres / 375 miles au nord. Raahe est une petite ville sur la côte ouest et il n’y a pas tellement de choses à voir, sauf une chose, qui est unique dans le monde entier – le plus ancien costume de plongée survivant du monde! Avec le survivant, je veux dire une chose qui continue à vivre ou exister. Penses-y.

Il a un beau surnom – Vieux Monsieur ça c’est avec un bonne raison. Vieux, parce qu’il est du début du 18ème siècle. De quelle matière on a fait ça? Eh bien, la plupart en cuir de veau. Avant de montrer mes photos, vous voulez probablement savoir à quoi il ressemble? Pensez que, vous verriez pour la première un alien de l’espacecosmique, c’est ça ce que le décrit le mieux! Après mes photos, je vous donne le lien vers la page du Musée de Raahe, qui raconte complètement ça ce que c’est vieux Monsieur. Si vous voulez le rencontrer personnellement Vieux Monsieur, puis vous le rencontrerez dans la Granary de Couronne à Raahe.

P.-S . Vieux Monsieur a visité à Lisbonne en 1998, également à Philadelphie et à Londres.

Em português:

O mais antigo traje de mergulho do mundo.

Era dia ensolarado de verão, quando fizemos uma curta viagem de Oulu a Raahe (em sueco Brahestad). A distância de Oulu é de apenas 75,5 km / 47 milhas ao sul e de Helsínquia 603 km / 375 milhas ao norte. Raahe é uma pequena cidade na costa ocidental e não há muito para ver, exceto uma coisa, que é único em todo o mundo – o mais antigo traje de mergulho sobrevivente! Com sobrevivendo, eu quero dizer que é uma coisa que continua a viver ou existir. Pense nisso.

Ele tem o legal apelido – o Velho Senhor e com razão. Velho, porque é a partir do início do século 18. De que material é feito? Bem, a maior parte dele é feito de couro de bezerro. Antes de mostrar as minhas fotos, você provavelmente vai querer saber como ele se parece? Pensa que, você veria pela primeira vez uma alienígena do espaço exterior, descreve-o melhor! Depois das minhas fotos, eu dou link para a página do Museu de Raahe, que conta completamente sobre o Velho Senhor. Se você quer conhecer o Velho Senhor pessoalmente, então você encontrará-o no Coroa Celeiro em Raahe.

Pós-escrito. o Velho Senhor tem visitado a Lisboa 1998, também na Filadélfia e Londres.

  1. When I see photos like this I think, who would volunteer to try this out? I’ll admit that it would not be me!

  2. That looks really ancient but rather funny. Great that it has survived. I wouldn’t have wanted to try it on… guess it was rather heavy in the water.

  3. Great photos of an amazing and very ancient diving suit. I wonder what it must have been like to wear this underwater? Very heavy and claustrophobic, I would think. Thank you for sharing. As always, very interesting.

  7. I shudder when I see this suit. How could anybody be crazy enough to risk their lives in a contraption like this?
    But then you do what you are used to, I guess? Even today there are a lot of people being uneasy about donning a modern free ding wet suit.
    Perhaps especially at night?!

      Always some people have been adventurous. Anyway, it was a cool and at the time, it was quite an invention. In 2013, they built a similar and in a test, it leaked. Thank You commenting.

      Have a great day!

      • Of course, it leaked! You can’t stitch something together and hope it to be waterproof?!🙂
        Myself I have close to a thousand divs as a ‘freediver’ using wetsuits and air.
        That wasn’t waterproof either!
        (And it was never supposed to be!)

    queste immagini favolose sembrano uscite dal libro di Julius Verne ” 20.000 leghe sotto ai mari ” si riscopre il sapore dell’antico coleegandolo al futuro, al nostro futuro moderno, all’altro più lontano e per ora ancora inconsapevolmente irreale e fantasioso in quanto le tecnologie moderne ci stanno trasportando incontro ad una deriva fantasmagorica
    grazie mille di questa piacevolissima scoperta

  17. The “Old Gentleman” looks rather special.🙂 I have to agree that it reminds a lot of an extraterrestrial coming from another planet.
    When I see old diving suits it often astounds me enormously that a human being could really dive in it – and survive! I know that in former times the main focus was to dive at a great(er) depth but not to swim rather long distances (horizontally). So it probably is understable that weight didn’t matter so much but was helpful instead when diving. Probably most divers at that time were raised by a rope and did not have to resurface completely on their own.
    Here at the local harbour museum I could see a metal diving suit. Good lord, I could never wear this or the “Gentleman’s suit” without getting claustrophobic!
    Matti, I really enjoyed that you and Anja appeared on the photos, too, as it was not only nice to see you but also very good to have a size comparison (suit, helmet etc.). Should your “alien” ever ask for an UFO, I’m only too willingly prepared to send them the spaceship you discovered in my recent “Planten un Blomen” blogpost. ^^
    Thanks for showing such unusual and particular diving equipment!

    Best regards from Hamburg and have a nice time!

    • Hello Betunada.

      Thank You commenting. Before our previous home, we lived on countryside 19½ years. I would say that moving is good for a man, but to select the right place is not so easy finally. It must be considered from much point of views – carefully. I am glad that You love my photos.

      Happy new week!

  34. Jejeje, me ha gustado “el viejo señor”. Me ha recordado a un animal microscópico que vive en el agua, y es increíble. Se llama TARDIGRADA (también conocido como oso de agua) y parece que se hubieran fijado en el al diseñar el traje de este buzo. Te dejo el enlace para que lo veas: http://www.elmundo.es/elmundo/2013/03/07/natura/1362677071.html
