I admire greatly the people who could endure long hours of tedious work practices, and whatever they were paid it was far from being enough. In those days the women were paid a lot less then the men. Nothing really in the workplace has changed for people producing metal figures,because a great deal is still done by hand.
As a collector of old stuff i placed this on my blog.
As a writer,socially it is an eye opener for those who have a heart to realise it. Thanks for posting. BB

@Kekso- Mhm, that video...Well that is a nice video...Sure brings back memory on TV show I watched about toys with Minja Subota... How many beautiful toys I saw back then...Really I don't envy kids today, they don't have what we had in our childhood...All this computer video games things and CGI cartoons kills the imagination... I think that the best toys beside toy soldiers and kinder egg figures were those wooden block and triangles and all sort of shapes from which you can make castles... Brings back memory of early youth...
