Last Call: Buster'n A Move Edition

Buster Keaton rides his first Segway, ca. 1920s
Here’s comedic actor Buster Keaton in a still from the 1923 film Our Hospitality riding what appears to be an early prototype of the Segway. While a very funny film maker, Keaton took driving safety very seriously and here he’s demonstrating the proper arm signal for a left turn.
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    Ah, the ill-fated “Horseless Chariot”, done in by the runaway success of the Horseless Carriage.

    Buster Keaton may have been more successful but his predecessor, Buster Hymen paved the way.

      BH is one of the founding members of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, I assume?

    More stable than a Segway, and still prettier than an Aztek.

    Look at the gap in his legs, you can make out a third wheel, and the fourth is offscreen right
