First up, an outstanding item from a past auction at Croton's own SeriousToyz.com -- from the 1950's, the Superior (T. Cohen) Service Station "Superior Service Station” #736. Came complete with box, minty, and sold for over $274.00--Wonderful graphics.
It's followed by a fabulous bit of vintage made in Japan Christmas ktisch...
Santa Claus in chimney--with "putz-abilities"--he's followed by a great "boy's toy"--the "Howitzer Cannon", 1950s, Marx, 12", molded hard plastic w/ metal firing mechanism, “Lumar” wheels; w/ 5 shells that actually fire.
And finally some pages from a 1929 playground equipment catalog--Hill Standards--with more to come. All metal! These certainly wouldn't fly today!
Again, click on the photos and enjoy.
