Home Town Radium Girl.
Waterbury is the home of the Timex factory. Back in world war II, when women entered the work force, a lot of local women got jobs with Timex. Painting the hands of the wrist watch with glow and the dark paint.
They licked their brushes to get a fine point.
They wore it as lipstick, as a surprise in the bedroom.
Most of the women died horrible deaths due to cancer. That glow in the dark paint. Who would have thought.
