|The whole of my pre - 1970 Lego collection! (The road|
plates are from 1978, so they don't count. They're there to
make the scene look a little more complete!)
315 - European Taxi - made between 1963 and 1970 it became the longest produced sets in the history of Lego. Made in Great Britain, in the days before the UK became too expensive to produce stuff so Lego pulled out and concentrated production in Denmark.
|315 - European Taxi. The simplicity of the design is apparent in the side view.|
316 - Farm Tractor - another 1963 veteran, missing only a round black brick for it's exhaust (which I'm sure I had when I bought it...I must have a search around...) It doesn't much resemble a tractor but with the limited pieces available to the designers it's not a bad attempt!
|316 - Farm Tractor. The color scheme resembles child's|
attempts at construction!
|332 - Tow Truck. Steerable wheels and specialized pieces|
gave the late 1960's Lego more play value than they had before.
