Footnote by owner

The owner will note that many of the toy cars and trucks displayed were produced and sold prior to 2nd World War.
And then discontinued and replaced wooden due to scarsity of metal used for war effort.
The owner also note that interestingly some toy vehicles were not replica at all but were then considered futunistic in designs.
The actualvehicles were not produced accordingly by automobile industrys.
However as children we enjoyed them immensely then, as we hope our customers will also enjoy as well, today.
