Sunny, and record hot day
Yesterday , I added a post of scans from a 1965 reproduction of an 1893 toy catalogue from the Ives,Blakeslee, and Williams, Company. Once upon a time, this American Company crossed over into the 20th century and was the leader for the manufacture of toy trains. Eventually, they were surpassed by the Lionel Corporation, and eventually closed shop (their business).
The Bertoia Auctions toys presented today are quite similar to the scans of yesterday's post, and some are even exact. I decided to add a separate post for the photos rather than "clutter" them altogether on one page. If you open up a new window with your browser, you will be able to place both pages side-by-side and make the comparisons yourself.
