NON-MECHANICAL STEEL TOYS.
The first Tip Lorries were mentioned in the 1937 catalogue in the Non-Mechanical Steel Toys section.
This is the description:
Made of steel, with strong axles and solid rubber wheels. Finished in brightly coloured enamel, immensely strong and almost indestructible.
There were two sizes: the "0" and the "00"In most cases sizes 0 and 00 are obtainable fitted with electric light (which we have never seen. .)
Batteries of the cartridge type are not included. Models with electric light are specified as "0E"or "00E". The tip lorries were made until 1957.
The last series contains three tip lorries: 0 - 00 - 000
The 0 is 32cm ;the 00 24 cm and the 000 18 cm
