Hang your kids out the window (Aug, 1953)

This is completely insane.

Apartment-Window Cage Protects English Tots
Enclosed in a wire cage suspended from an apartment window, English children play in the sunlight and fresh air while their mothers are busy with housework. The cage, made of wire netting is strongly braced and is guarded on the apartment side by a cloth net which prevents children from crawling back into the room. Loaned by an infant welfare center to families with no gardens, the portable balcony is apparently popular with children and mothers. The demand exceeds the supply.

    [...] Craig found this site the other day, and it’s full of hilarious old articles from popular mechanics – from the 40s and 30s.  Worth wasting some time at, for sure.  For example, check this out … or even this one.  I wonder if society will look back on us in 50-60 years and think the same thing?

    My sister has got a smaller version for her cat. But it has a solid roof to keep out the rain.
