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.

Toyclaus - An Excellent ebay Seller

An Excellent ebay Seller
Today's post id from last November (2016). I had worked on the post but never added it to my blog.
"Toyclaus" is a fine ebay seller whom I asked for permission to use his photos several years ago. What I wanted to write about is some of the factors that help bring success to ebay sellers.
If you look at the photos of Toyclaus, you'll notice several things:
1. The photos are in focus.
2. There are plenty of photos.
3. The photos are exposed well, and
4. Many different angles of the listings are used to present the toys in their best manner.
I decided to covert the individual photos into a grouping of photos called a "montage".
As I mentioned a few days back, we've been having lots and lots of rain up here. April was almost a record for the month for the most rain in a month. Meanwhile, it's only May 5, and already 3 of the 5 days in the month have been overcast with rain. The next 6 days are projected to have rain again!
Many of the citied around Montreal and elsewhere have been inundated with so much rain, that the rivers have overflowed their banks, and flooding of homes has occurred.
Hopefully, by mid-May, the rain will finally stop, and seasonal weather will prevail!
