TIN FRICTION STATION WAGON TOY WITH LUGGAGE RACK , MADE IN JAPAN, 1950's
This over 60 year old friction powered Station Wagon still runs like new even though its age is starting to show. It even has a luggage rack on the top. I never saw one of these in the fifties but there must have been some kicking around somewheres. Like many older toys this one was made in Japan. As kids we would say that it was made by the J. A. Pan Company. Japan never had the names of the companies on their products such as other companies do like Hasbro, Renwall, Corgi, etcetera, etcetera. But the quality is still there today. Not many toys that are made now will stand the test of time as the older ones.We seem to be going backwards and not ahead. Thanks for stopping by.
Trivia: What crime led to Billy the Kid's first run-in with the law? ----Stealing butter.
Did You Know? The giant Gippsland earthworm, which lives in Victoria, Australia, can reach lengths of 10 feet (3 m). The young are already 8 inches (20cm) long when they hatch and take about 5 years to reach maturity. When the giant worm was first discovered in the 1870's, its size led scientists to think it was a snake. (I would too!)
