" VISION SI-IIELD'FOR VEHICLES.

LAWSON, a citi zen of the United States, and Tipton, county of Tipton,and State of Indiana, have invented a certain new and useful Vision Shield for Vehicles; and I do hereby declaretthat thefollowing is a full, clear,

ence belng had to the accompanying draw-p ings, in which like numerals refer to like parts. i I i This invention relates to a V1S1OIl-Sl1lBlCl for vehicles supplementing the usual wind shield orwindow. i

The chief object of this invention 18 to provide a window or Wind shield of the vehicle with a vision shield which may be sooured to said window or wind shield as an attachment.

The chief feature of the invention consists in associating the vision shield with the window in such a manner that said shield may be adjustably positioned and maintained in position upon said window and simultaneously is adapted to discharge the water collected by said shield from the shield and Window, as well as adapted to clean the windoW.

Another feature of the invention consists in the particular means for mounting and supporting the shield upon the window.

The full nature of this invention will be understood from the accompanying drawings and the following description and claims.

In the drawings Fig. tional view of the vehicle with the vision shield associated therewith. Fig. 2 is an enlarged front elevation of a window with the shield associated therewith. Fig. 3 is a longitudinal sectional view of the window and shield shown in Fig. 2. Fig. 4 is an enlarged bottom plan view of the shield. Fig. 5 is an enlarged View of the supporting means for the shield.

In the drawings 10 indicates a vehicle, such as an electric railway car and 11 designates the drivers or motormans compartment provided with a plurality of windows 12, one of which is centrally positioned. One of the windows 12, see Fig. 2, is herein shown comprising the usual frame or sash 13 and the usual transparent member or pane of glass 14.

The vision shield is herein designated by the numeral 15, and comprises a frame work 1 is a side elevaa resident of.

16 which includes two parall el sides 16.

,Also positioned upon the frame work, and

across the window and each of; the brackets 19 terminates in a ball retainer 22 which is seatable-in said guide, the flange or neck portion 23 thereof extending through the slot 21 in the guide. Within each guide and beneath the lowermost walls 22 is a coil spring 24, one end of which is suitably secured to the base of said guides or to the sash, and the other end suitably secured to the shield frame, or to the lowermost balls 22, Thus, the spring normally tends to draw the vision shield downward. The cable 18, therefore, is adapted to maintain the vision shield in the desired position through means of any preferred or usual form, such as that illustrated in Fig. 5, wherein there is shown the usual self locking pulley 25 associated with the cable 18 and a suitable knob or handle 26. Other means may be provided for maintaining the cable in the desired position to maintain the vision shield in adjusted position upon'the window.

Reference will now be had to Figs. 2 to 4 inclusive wherein the particular construction of the vision shield is illustrated in detail. The vision shield comprises an outwardly and downwardly extending portion 30 which. portion may be of any suitable material, but preferably is of glass and may be colored to serve as a sun shield. The portion 30 extends angularly of the window 14 and preferably is in the form of a portion of a conical surface. However, the lowermost and outer edge 31 of the shield is arcuate in form and extends downwardly and rearwardly towards the window. The lower edge of the vision shield is provided with a trough portion 32 which is shown clearly in Figs. 2 and 3 and is adapted to collect the water which is impinged upon the shield 30 and turn the same from said shield, discharging the same outwardly therefrom and from the window, so that no water will I -20 heretofore describd.

The combination of a window, a shield i I therefor, including two parallel sides, a. pair of guides-secured to said window in-spaced fixedmy signature.

memos and parallel relation and at opposite sides .of the shield, guiding means on each of the and other means for sliding saidshield in the opposite direction.

2., The combination of a window, a shield therefor, including two parallel sides, a pair of guides secured to said window in spaced and'parallel relation and at opposite sides of the shield, projecting-guiding means on each oftheparallel sides of said shield and seated in and slidable in said guides, spring means in each of said guides cooperating with the projecting guiding means of said shield for moving the shield in one direction, other means associated with said shield for moving the same in the opposite direction, and means for securlng said last mentioned means to retainsa1d=sh1eld 1n the selective positions upon said window.
