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.

An Interesting Antique
Fire Station Toy
I was searching for a toy company by the name of J.H. Co. The toy is an antique hay loader.
Unfortunately I couldn't find any information on the toy. I've asked the person who wrote me to send me photos of her toy and a close-up of the name, and I would write a blog post for her.
If you have a J.H.Co toy, or have any information about the company, please write to me.
One of the great places that I visit periodically is Antiquetoys.com
As I was searching their data base of toy manufacturers, I came across a nice fire station toy.
THe toy is made of wood ,possibly mahogany, and cast iron.
