Baby Cage

How com­fort­able would you be using one of these?

The descrip­tion from Life:

“A nanny super­vis­ing a baby sus­pended in a wire cage attached to the out­side of a high ten­e­ment block win­dow. The cages were dis­trib­uted to mem­bers of the Chelsea Baby Club in Lon­don who have no gar­dens, or qualms about putting a child in a box dan­gling over a busy street.” [June 23, 1937]

Wow.
