High-tech, 1920-style

In the 1920s, people started locking their car doors, but they needed a separate key to do so. The ignition start switch also gradually became the norm. It not only locked the electric circuit, but also ignited the starter. Once the key was removed, the steering wheel could be locked. A matter of course today, but high-tech back then.
