To celebrate the holiday season, the New-York Historical Society is presenting an installation of nineteenth- and twentieth-century toys from the permanent collection. The display will include a playful selection of cast iron, tin, and carved wooden toys and banks made between 1850 and 1945. Among them will be still and mechanical banks, wind-up, pull, and clockwork toys, toy soldiers, and an assortment of trains, all topped with a Statue of Liberty still bank made between 1885 and 1920.
