Back Page - The Children and their Mobile Toys

Children love toys that move, especially ones that move them along too.

Tricycles, wagons, pedal cars and bicycles.

Our mobile society.

I recently watched television show about junk dealers. One collector, while pulling an old bicycle frame from under a bush, remarked how independent he felt when, as a child, he got his first bicycle.

I remember an elderly neighbor of mine who hated to give up her driver’s license because it felt like a loss of independence. She was 84 and hadn’t driven in years, but it was the symbolism that bothered her.

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery to us how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
