During the late 1950s, Mr. Lloyd Greene owned
“Delta Distributors”, a regional distributor of the popular new
British–made line of die cast toys, “Matchbox” cars. In early 1960, he
placed his largest order ever with Fred Bronner, the sole distributor of
Matchbox toys in the U.S. Between the time he placed that order, and
the time it was shipped on September 2, 1960, his business’ building and
property was seized by the state of Massachusetts (using “eminent
domain”), for use in the newly expanding Mass. Turnpike. Finding himself
without a place to do business, he decided to store the remaining
inventory in an attic on another property he owned. There it stayed,
safe but forgotten. GO HERE NOW--click on the link! http://www.serioustoyz.com/viewuserdefinedpage.aspx?pn=MillstreamMatchboxArchive
