Child Car Seat 1920 Style

The Kissel 6-45 “Gold Bug” Speedster was capable of speeds up to 70 mph.  Not bad at all for 1920.  But with only two seats it presented a dilemma.  What if your little brother wanted to tag along as you took your girlfriend on a date?  Farsighted automotive engineers provided a solution, a slide out child seat located on the outside of the car!  If that wasn’t bad enough (and how much worse could it get) the child seat didn’t have seat belts!  Any panic braking and little brother would go flying.  This leads me to ask; What were they thinking?  This photograph was taken at the Academy of Art University.
