Toy-making

31 Jul

Thanks to LBWF’s Vestry House Museum we have added three historic pictures to our page on Walthamstow’s toy-making industries.

One shows workers in the Wells-Brimtoy works in around 1947,  producing a new line for export to America!

And two others show Britain’s factory in Blackhorse Road (outside and inside).

We still would like to hear from anyone with memories of these sites, first hand or passed on from others.
