A brief, off-topic one from the young David Evans, who bought a whole bunch of 1940s Meccano magazines from a bookseller in Lichfield recently – David was so endeared by them, he scanned them and sent them to me.
I’m happy to feature these here if folk are interested; they’re a wonderful period piece, and I’m sure many of the readers here – male and female – enjoyed making stuff with Mecanno, Philiform, Lego and construction sets like it when we were kids.
The ever-present shadow of the war is clearly evident in these, too.
Thanks to David for yet another curious piece of communal history.
I’ve really enjoyed reading these, please let me know what you think – comment here, or BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers!
