the right, the famous LOOP THE LOOP ride at Coney Island, circa 1903.
This is a wonderful old photo, no known restrictions, filled with lots
of details: ice cream sodas for a nickel, the ubiquitous Robert Burns
cigar shop, almost every man and woman wearing a hat--and so much more. It's followed by a great old namesake tin
toy by Wolverine, circa 1930's--the Loop The Loop, 19 inches long--the
car traveled from one end
to the other while spinning upside down, with a loud ringing
bell--featured in a previous auction at SeriousToyz---back in 2014 or so, it sold for $488.
And then.....yes you too can own this amazing set of free Victory Glasses--ideal for beer, highballs and more. But be forewarned--the image on the other side of the glass is not for prudes! From 1943.
And finally....from our friends at European Film Star Postcards....a post on BABY LEROY! Hollywood's most famous toddler! READ MORE ABOUT HIM HERE. Again, click on the photos and links.

My wife has tried to bid on that Wolverine toy for many years since it was one she had as a child. Every time she tried, the price went well north of five hundred dollars. Yes. we can afford it but there was always something else the "family" needed so she just gave up. Then last summer, I found this toy at a tag sale, with the original box for two hundred dollars! My wife said it meant more to her than diamonds when I brought it home. And I got my favorite meal once a week for a month!ReplyDelete
