Children's Xmas Presents - 1915

Recommended Posts

I've been trawling the Great War newspapers for a pukka bit of research, but in my travels I came across the inevitable Christmas adverts from the department stores.

 

I thought you might all be interested in seeing what Harrods Toy Department was promoting for little boys' stockings in 1915 ...

The trench set even seems to have a soldier KiA :poppy:

 

An interesting insight eh?
