Heath Robinson Bedroom 4 of 4
Heath Robinson Does Away with Servants - Patent Applied for by "The Sketch" in the Bedroom. A bedroom, which is a typically Heath Robinson design, with a system of pulleys, levers and machinery allowing multiple tasks to be carried out with the least effort. Mother, Father and baby all in separate beds, yet still able to fetch the morning mail, newspaper, telephone, pour tea (kept hot from the gas lamp), select a dressing gown, slippers, and even a cigarette from a spring loaded box, and no need for servants. Even the pendulum of the clock serves as a handy baby rocker. Please note: Credit must appear as Courtesy of the Estate of Mrs J.C.Robinson/Pollinger Ltd/ILN/Mary Evan"
