Meccano for the toy shop

Pure nostalgia for many -- a Bedford truck, oops, lorry, delivers Meccano and Dinky Toys for the toy shop on a typical British high street.  A 2-door Morris Minor is parked in front and a Morris van behind.

This is a painting by Malcolm Root, an English artist whose forte is historic transport in Britain.  We have three of his books of paintings in our library.
