I don't make any income from this blog, and provide the blog more for the public's interest, and the pleasure that I get form writing and learning about the subject of old toys. So I decided that I'd take the initiative and post. I'll also send a third e-mail and see if I get a reply.
Looking for old toys photos and information on the Net is like that famous expression from the movie Forest Gump - " Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get". And so it is! Last Sunday, I was searching out Paya toys, when I accidently came upon
I waited, but I knew that I'd hear from Sarah Breighton eventually. I figured that she was very busy, and eventually I'd here from her. And so I did today. I already had written the blog a while back, so all I had to do for today is write this small paragraph, re-set the posting date,and here it is the beautiful toys from the Royal Museums Greenwich.
Now that I have the "OK", I'd like to return to the Museum and look at more of their beautifully photographed toys, and probably writ another post.
Like the USA, Great Britain was famous for their piers. Piers were huge attractions from the 1870's-1950's,and in some places they still are. I remember going to Atlantic City in the 1950's with my brothers and sister and parents and going on the piers. There was the diving horse that jumped into the water with a rider. There was a giant net that lifted up every 24 hours to show you the fish that were caught in it. And of course, there were hotdog stands, popcorn, and most-famously - salt water taffy!
