Building Blocks c. 1880

From Anita Schorsch.  Images of Childhood.  An Illustrated Social History.  Main Street Press Book/Mayflower Books, 1979.

When my kids were growing up, we had a big box of wooden blocks for them to play with.  I'd occasionally add unusually-shaped off-cuts from my shop to complement them.  Of all of the toys they had over the years, the blocks had consistently the best play value.
