1955 – Robot – Tim Grimes (British)

In the picture above, 17-year old Frank Grimes of Alphington, near Exeter, is seen introducing his cat to a mechanical man he has made out of odds and ends. It is powered by an electric motor, but only Frank knows the secret of how it walks backwards and forwards, swings its arms, turns its head, and flashes its eyes. Yet he intends to dismantle it as he needs the parts for making a working scale-model of a helicopter!
