This blog discusses old toys from the early 1920's to the end of the 1950's. All kinds of topics are discussed.
The time span was the greatest period for "hands-on" toys, where a young child could actually go outside and play for hours at a time.
You can see the elegance but simple design of these toys. It was a time when huge machines, and people made and finished toys by hand.
The era has long passed, but many of the toys are still around, and that is what I would like to share.

More Chrysler Airflows
Wednesday, November 22, 2016 Overcast with Snow 1 Celcius 34 Fahrenheit
I've written before about the Chrysler Airflow, but I decided to search again for more photos.
The Airflow was built from 1934-1937, but sadly did not dwell well, and was a commercial failure.
The car was aerodynamically built to create less wind resistance, and also used a unibody (monocoque) construction for added strength and to be more aerodynamic. Chrysler built a wind tunnel to study the flow of air over the car, and how less resistant to air the car was, hence the name "Airflow".
