Thank you to David Gordon, owner of 'Now & Then' the antique and old toy shop at West Crosscauseway for telling me about one of the toys that his partner, Jeanie Laub, has discovered from long ago.  It was sold by The Albert Bazaar, 10 Shandwick Place, Edinburgh.

"Jeanie has just photographed a very early constructional wooden toy.  One of the images shows a label for 'The Albert Bazaar' 10 Shandwick Place.

It is a quality toy. It gives a glimpse into what some lucky children in Edinburgh in the 1890s might have received."

"Here are photos of another wonderful 19th century toy sold by Albert Bazaar, 10 Shandwick Place, Edinburgh.  This time, the label is more complete.

       

I'm going to put it for sale on eBay tomorrow."
