30 Dumb Inventions

There’s a terrific gallery of old images courtesy of LIFE that show off 30 Dumb Inventions.

My favorite is the Baby Cage 1937

A nanny supervising a baby suspended in a wire cage attached to the outside of a high tenement block window. The cages were distributed to members of the Chelsea Baby Club in London who have no gardens, or qualms about putting a child in a box dangling over a busy street.
