Ye Old Toy Shoppe
Painting - Oil On Canvas
Toy shops, In the 19th century the main retailers of technical toys were opticians who sold steam engines, magic lanterns, building blocks and optical toys such as the kaleidoscope and zoetrope. Victorian parents believed that children should not play games on a Sunday but they were allowed to play with Noahs Arks because of their religious significance.
Many famous toy companies started business in the 1890s and 1900s. Britains started making toy soldiers and later farmyards, zoos, cowboys and indians and railway figures. Hornby produced clockwork and electric trains and Meccano. World War II brought toy production to a standstill. There was a revival in home made toys and knitted toy patterns became popular.
This poor little waife stops to look in the Toy shop Window, longing for some of the toys; "that she knows"; she wont be recieving for Christmas:) She is so Poor that the shoes she is wearing are far too large for her tiny feet........Her little puppy sits shivering beside her in the snow (they are both hungrey & cold)
