Humble Beginning

Posted to Flickr on 31 May 2009.

The Monopoly board game was patented in 1935. This replica set is based on the game designs used in the 1930s. For example, the houses are made of wood instead of plastic, and the car has a more humble look.

Photo shot for the Flickr group 7 Days of Shooting and, in particular, in response to j.towbin’s wonderful Boardwalk photo.


This Monopoly car has been spotted driving in these places:
