More robots of the 1920s.

This quartet taken from The San Antonio Light, 16 October, 1928, under the headline "Steel Soldiers May Do Mankind's Fighting."


The caption for the above is "Possibly in some grim war of the future the doughboy will have become the "iron boy." The army has enlisted its first mechanical man, "Private Robot," and put him to work at Aberdeen proving grounds.
