First up, a fab photo (no copyright restrictions) from LOC--for the Wilson Store, circa 1910, 1920--a window filled with the latest baby carriages--it's followed by a close-up of the window so you can see all that vintage goodness. That's followed by a great battery operated 1950's made in Japan poodle with bone--and her name is Mimi of course! We don't know which we like better: the graphics on the box or the actual toy!
And finally for fans of Lex Barker--from our friends at European Film Star Postcards-----Der Schatz im Silbersee/Treasure of Silver Lake (Harald Reinl, 1963), the most successful German film of the 1962/1963 season. Surprisingly, it even beat the first James Bond film, Dr. No (Terence Young, 1962), at the German box offices. Der Schatz im Silbersee starred Lex Barker, for the first time in the role of Old Shatterhand, and French actor Pierre Brice as his friend, the Apache-chief Winnetou. For many people born in the 1950s or 1960s, Winnetou became one of our favourite heroes.
