1976 Little Construction Vehicles

1976 Little Construction Vehicles

Posted to Flickr on 16 August 2010. Included in my Portfolio.

I’ve had these little plastic construction vehicles for as long as I can remember. I don’t recall the details of how I acquired them, but I suspect they were birthday party favors. My set included a steam roller, dump truck, power shovel, forklift, and bulldozer.

I played with them when I was quite young, and then in my high school days I displayed the set in a shadow box that hung on my bedroom wall. Today, they live in a special wooden box dedicated to such trinkets.

Photo submitted to the Flickr group Macro Mondays for the "childhood memories" theme.

This is one of many curious items collected in JD’s House of Miscellany.

These little construction vehicles have also been seen hard at work here:

Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.


This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
