I submit for your attention this comic strip from 95 years ago regarding the exploits of a ‘lectric-obsessed child and his less-than-supportive father. (Click through for the rest of the comic.)The Anti-GeekDad, Circa 1914, Jan 2009
This is a really cool insight into how tinkering (and electricity) were viewed at the turn of the last century through public art. Granted it’s a caricature, but ironically it seems like tinkering and being fascinated with technical intricacies were still considered uncool until the 2000s.
