The 3 scans presented above are from 2 great catalogues from that era. One is the Montgomery Ward and Company catalogue, while the other one is Butler Brothers. For those who don't know, purchasing merchandise from catalogues was very popular "way back". The USA was still very rural, and much of the country had not been settled. Consequently,the main mode of transportation was by train, since there were not may roads. You have to remember that the "automobile" in terms of production (e.g. Henry Ford's assembly line) was really only about 20 years old. Also trucks could not travel those long distances as the roads were poor (unpaved with asphalt), and the trucks were in their infancy as far as quality and development went.
The scanned images may not not American National toys. I can't tell, as the catalogues do not identify the manufacturer. What's interesting to note is the cost of these toys. Although the price by today's standards is low, there were also transportation charges via rail Also relatively low). However, considering the very low wages at the time, $5.00 - $12.00 was a lot of money at that time!
