yes we are, and if that train engine is your answer, i'm sorry but you would be wrong. I believe they were considered one of the first type of uncovered drum brake.

Disc brakes

I thought that I knew the answer, but Joeford had the suggestion I would have made included in his answer (his was a direct quote from a wikipedia article). I was gonna say the ' 49 Crosley, but he already said it so I guess I would have been wrong anyway.....

So we wait for someone else to come up with it

You both are wrong by quite a bit. I was going to give a clue, but I will wait.

This is what I know and was able to find:

Disc-style brakes development and use began in England in the 1890s. The first caliper-type automobile disc brake was patented by Frederick William Lanchester in his Birmingham, UK factory in 1902 and used successfully on Lanchester cars. However, the limited choice of metals in this period, meant that he had to use copper as the braking medium acting on the disc. The poor state of the roads at this time, no more than dusty, rough tracks, meant that the copper wore quickly making the disc brake system non-viable (as recorded in The Lanchester Legacy). It took another half century for his innovation to be widely adopted.

Modern-style disc brakes first appeared on the low-volume Crosley Hotshot in 1949, although they had to be discontinued in 1950 due to design problems.[1] Chrysler's Imperial also offered a type of disc brake from 1949 through 1953, though in this instance they were enclosed with dual internal-expanding, full-circle pressure plates. Reliable modern disc brakes were developed in the UK by Dunlop and first appeared in 1953 on the Jaguar C-Type racing car. The CitroŽn DS of 1955, with powered inboard front disc brakes, and the 1956 Triumph TR3 were the first European production cars to feature modern disc brakes.[2] The first production car to feature disc brakes at all 4 wheels was the Austin-Healey 100S in 1954.[3] The first British company to market a production saloon fitted with disc brakes to all four wheels was Jensen Motors with the introduction of a Deluxe version of the Jensen 541 with Dunlop disc brakes.[4] The next American production cars to be fitted with disc brakes were the 1963 Studebaker Avanti[5] (optional on other Studebaker models).

And this is where the train wreck is going to start. That is not the year, nor is it the car.you are very close on the year, everything else is miles apart.
I didn't say that the inventor had a patent on them, but there is a clue in the question, and in the answer I just gave. I will tell you I found this question looking for the answer to the last one.
