Pedomotor steam-powered walking device, patented by Leslie C. Kelley in 1917; again no photos seem to exist.

A device patented for strengthening the hands and correcting the posture of piano players. The only time I've ever seen one made, was a modified version with extra finger extensions worn by Tom Waits in Coppola's Dracula.

Last was nice find. I also made clock operated version from that old thing in many years ago. http://astalo.deviantart.com/art/Clockwork-hand-87419604 and it's first prototype was quite close to original finger strengthening devices. http://www.saunalahti.fi/~wfan/kuvat/v-nykykoru03.jpg

Women in bat costumes. Bats seemed to have been a popular costume theme in the early 20th century.
