This is how all started… (pics excepting the first one… by Christopher Joseph) as seen in facebook!

Maybe for me (not a single pic is of my Toy Soldiers at all… not even the Castle… but close enough).

Wood building blocks… in my cas they were cork… Britain’s in red tunics!… there you got it! (BUT lots of other not so nice soldiers buuut… deligthful in their way too… they were not even lead).

To have Britain’s in the Nineteen Fifties in Barcelona (Spain) was a rare luxury… and I had them thanks to a trip to London of my Pa&Ma (How they translate THAT BIG BOX in THAT TIME eludes me… maybe a Hamley’s purchase?… on a plane (Do you remembre the commercial planes of the fifties?)…

Whatever… have not stopped collecting the stuff since then.


BTW Nice framed posters on the walls…

No idea where I did find this pic SORRY!
Christopher Joseph Collection as the rest…
