Bradley's Toy Village Set #4552 1909 - Pt 3

Today we'll look at the second house in Bradley's Toy Village Set #4552 from 1909. Sometimes we have a romantic idea that things made in the Good Old Days were of better quality than now ('They sure don't make them the way they used to') but that's not entirely so, it's just a misconception. In fact, many things made back then weren't quite up to par. This house is a good example. The color registration is off, making a couple of the sides look blurry and the printing does not match up exactly with the way the houses were cut out of the sheet of cardboard (or the cardboard was cut wrong). Not quite the perfection we cherish so from days gone by. Still, it's another fine example of vintage paper and I like it.  Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
