    MY father had these as toys when he was a child. He was born in 1919 and I guess he played with these in the mid '20's. I have no idea about the manufacturer of these especially the firetruck and streetcar. Both are metal. The firetruck has 2 ladders.
    The boat is all wood. The only item missing is the sail which dry rotted. The boat is roughly 2 1/2 feet long and about the same height. I'd like to find out background and value if possible.

      The firetruck is made by Schieble, probably in the teens. The trolly I believe is attributed to Dayton. Both are very cool!

      The boat is interesting, I love the tacks on the side.
