Toys from the Past
This is a very ancient photograph. It is actually a black and white image that my mother colored with special, transparent oil paints.
Yes, there was a time when there was less color in the world. No color television and no color photographs, but we did without.
That's me on the right. I don't look very happy, but I do remember loving that toy. I remember the name of it--Golden Arrow. I do not remember my brother's little firetruck--probably because he never allowed me to sit in it. :^)
Toys were a lot simpler back in those days. I had dolls, a doll house, and a tea set. My brother had trains and guns, but I played with those, too. He was a cowboy, I was a cowgirl. I made boiled potatoes on my little play stove. He was Davy Crockett with his coonskin cap. He was Superman and broke his arm when he jumped off the porch. I was not as daring.
Do you remember what your favorite toys were when you were young?
