Name Holgate #424 24 Junior Blocks, Colored, in wagon (bottom marked)










Description Early Holgate wagon of colored blocks, missing one "column" (cylinder) piece. All other pieces present, though well worn. Wagon has early 1 1/8" diameter wooden hubs, and is unpainted, except for the red wheels. Thick pull rope is broken and frayed.

Only markings are stenciled on bottom of wagon: "HOLGATE | JUNIOR BLOCKS", and "NO 424 | 24 PCS".

As seen in the 1934 and 1935 catalogs.

See Holgate #424 24 Junior Blocks, Colored, in wagon (unmarked) for what is probably a later variation with larger hubs, an additional support on the bottom, and screws instead of nails.
