BABY CARRIAGE STORM SHIELD Filed Feb. 15, 1939 Bosetta SHZlleberg:

INVENTOR ATTORNEYS Patented Oct. 15, 1940 UNITED STATES PATENT b- Rosetta S. Lilleberg, San Francisco, Calif. Application February 15, 1939, Serial No. 256,572

1 Claim.

This invention relates to storm shields for baby carriages, and its general object is to provide a shield that is preferably made from transparent material in the form of a closure primarily de- 5 signed for a carriage including an arcuate canopied type top, the closure being shaped to fit and completely cover the top and body of the carriage, as well as to extend from said top to the lower edge of the body on the front, rear and 10, sides of the latter, so as to not only amply protect the baby during inclement weather, but also prevents the body and top in their entirety from becoming wet by rain or the like.

A further object is to provide a storm shield 15} for a baby carriage that can be applied and removed with respect thereto in an easy and expeditious manner, yet casual removal or displacement thereof, by wind or other means, is practically impossible due to the fitting associa- 20 tion of the shield with the carriage.

Another object is to provide a shield of the character set forth, that includes ample ventilating means, is simple in construction, inexpensive to manufacture, and extremely efiicient in use and 25 service.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accom 30 panying drawing and specifically pointed out in the appended claim.

In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts 5 throughout the several views, and in which:

Figure 1 is a perspective View illustrating my shieldinuse.

Figure 2 is a perspective view per se.

Referring to the drawing in detail, the letter A indicates a baby carriage, of a well known type, that includes a body having pivotally secured thereto a top B of the arcuate canopied type, the top being shown in its normal or rearwardly dis- 45 posed position.

The shield is preferably made in any suitable manner, from any suitable transparent or translucent sheet material, such as heavy oiled silk, Cellophane or the like, to provide straight, verti- 5 cal parallel side walls I, an inclined top wall 2 secured to the inclined upper edges of the side walls, and a rear wall 3 having a curved upper portion to follow the curvature of the top B and is secured to the upper edge of the inclined top 55 wall and to the rear edges of the side walls. A

of the shield,

front wall 4 is secured to the lower edge of the inclined top wall 2 and tothe front edges of the side walls, as clearly shown in Figure 2.

The bottom of the shield is completely open to allow the shield to be slipped over the top and 5 body of the carriage, as will be apparent upon inspection of Figure 1, and the front and rear edges of the side walls at the lower portions thereof are directed towards each other, to reduce the lower portion of the shield, as best shown in Figure 2. The front, rear and side walls are of sufficient length to cover the entire body of the carriage, while the top wall cooperates with the rear and side walls to cover the top B, and the forward portions of the side walls, as well as the top wall, extend across the space between the top B and the body of the carriage to completely enclose the same, as clearly shown in Figure 1.

In order to facilitate the application and removal of the shield with respect to the carriage, the front wall is preferably slit along its vertical center and the slit is closed by a slide fastened 5. The side walls may have reenforced ventilation openings 6 arranged in row formation therein and the side walls may likewise have slits extending vertically therein to provide access means to the interior of the carriage, without removing the shield therefrom, the slits being closed by slide fasteners 1, in the form as shown.

From the above description and disclosure in the drawing it will be obvious that I have pro vided a storm shield that amply protects the baby as well as the carriage, so that the baby can be taken out during inclement weather without fear of affecting its health, yet the shield makes it possible to have ready access to the baby and the latter can see through the shield, due to the transparent or translucent nature thereof, as will be apparent upon inspection of Figure l.

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent.

It is to be understood that changes may be made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claim.

What I claim is:

A storm shield for a baby carriage including a canopied type top, said shield being formed from transparent sheet material to provide straight parallel sidewalls, an inclined topwall, a rear wall and a front wall, said rear wall having a rounded upper portion to follow the curvature of said top, all of said Walls being secured together and shaped to fit the body of the carriage and its top to completely cover the latter and the side, rear and front walls being of a height to extend below andenclose the body, the lower portion of the shield being open and reduced towards its lower edge, said top wall adapted to extend from said top of the carriage to the front of said body for cooperation with the side walls for enclosing w the space between said top and said body, said
