Your 3rd photo brings back memories. I see two “orange box” scooters at the curb. I made one of those when I was about 10 years old. For those of us with little or no money in the 1940s, a home-made scooter was a real treat – a piece of 2×4 for the baseboard, an old roller skate broken in half for the front and rear wheels, and, of course, the orange box supplied by a friendly grocer with a crossbar stick nailed on top for steering. Not much, but they gave some fun for many kids then, me included.
