Toys from the Past
Toys with wheels
This train set is made of tin plate. It is around 100 years old.
The box lid shows a train travelling along a railway with children playing games in a park nearby.
Does it look like a modern train?
What games are the children playing on the lid?
The wooden toy with wheels is a model post van from 1890. The real size would have been pulled by horses. There are even four small parcels with addresses on.
How would a toy post van be different today?
