Remember Meccano
— invented to amuse –
two sons held together
by small nuts and bolts.

In 1907 his idea became
boys beaming – building —
or playing. Boyhood’s Best
Days! Grow with the Boys!

Girls were only Dinky –
archives­­­ of oral history
from the old collection
–displayed to illustrate.

Come then — find them.
