1935 – Unknown Mechanical Man – (American)

This early Robot may have been in the Boston area in 1935. It looks capable of standing and sitting, raising and lowering either arm, and appears to have microphones in its ears. Like most of this era, it most likely would have responded to a sequence of commands.  In its right hand is a pistol; a popular 'trick' at the time was to, upon a verbal command,  raise an arm and fire a gun.
