It’s the famous San Francisco Powell & Market tram. Although this is a simple body shape, the printed detail is fine and makes the toy quite authentic. Clockwork motor driven and packaged in a colours- printed box. This is a reproduction of a 1920’s tin toy original.
Every tin toy starts out as a flat sheet of metal that is printed and then cut into separate pieces. Each piece is then formed into it’s final shape through numerous tooling stations. The pieces are then hand assembled to create the final toy. So, minor marks and paint flaws can occur. All tin toys are produced in the same style as they were in the 1950’s and 60’s.
