What were the playthings of American children when Andrew Jackson was in the White House - and during the seven decades thereafter? Here they are, superbly photographed: the bell toys, circus and transportation toys, rocking horse and hobby horses, push and pull toys, balls, hoops, tops, squeak toys, and banks (both mechanical and still) that American grown-ups were giving American children in the period from 1830 until the turn of the century.
