Hi

I received my issue of AntiqueWeek today and on the front page is an article "ALOX:FROM SHOELACES TO TOYS".. continued on another fuul page of marbles and the boxes, etc..

I thought those of you that collect these would enjoy the article.

Unfortunately, I am not that knowledgeable on how to take pics of pages to put the article on the chat board.

but am sure that someone else gets the newspaper and can do that.
