I received this for my 7th birthday 60 years ago today. I remember seeing it the store and telling my mother "that's what I want for my birthday". The set is significant to me, because it was my first big boy toy that showed that I had become more responsible and the circumstances then. The set reminds me of my wonderful mother and I performing experiments in that cold kitchen in Oklahoma where we had just moved. My parents had just divorced, but Christmas and my birthday brought some joy being with my mother during a difficult time. Some more Gilbert stuff in the last pick, I recieved the cannister Erector set in the picture that year for Christmas. Happy New Year to all my CW friends!
