Table of Contents

It is conjectured that thousands of different sand pail designs were created between 1880 and 1950. Once 19th century manufacturing processes allowed lithography onto flat sheets of tin, it was only a question of time before children were confronted with one simple decision: which pail should I choose? This book features 300 tin sand pails, each of a different design, along with corollary sand shovels, sifters, molds, toys, and related sand pail ephemera produced during the 70-year span. Manufacturers and marks are cited for each, and a price key is included. 120 pages, 450 full-color photographs.
