Easter: Wooden Toys

These were made by my paternal grandfather (for either my dad or uncle in their youth). He was once a busdriver, so we are assuming he once drove the 102 to Chingford.

Nowadays, the toys are mainly used for housing spiders, but they are a reminder of the power of the hand-made and ingenuity of the everyday.
