Reliable Toy Company - Farm Tractor

A piece of Canadian toy history. The Reliable Toy Company Limited of Toronto, Ontario, Canada (1922-1991) at one point had the largest toy factory in the British Empire. Info: www.historymuseum.ca/canadaplay/manufacturers/reliable-toys.php

It belonged to my grandmother and was available for visitor use. We didn't count as visitors since we lived in the same farm house and had our own toys to mangle. So it's in pretty good condition, since it got limited use (see images).

Age: I'm guessing late 1940's. The Reliable 1953 Plastic Toys catalog has a modified version of this tractor with a smaller man and smaller, more forward set of front wheels. (www.historymuseum.ca/canadaplay/introduction/catalogues.php - page 22)

Size: about 9.5 cm long by 6 cm wide by 8 cm high.

Markings: Tractor main body, left side has "Reliable" with a tiny "Made in Canada" under the Reliable. The large tires have "Reliable" - "30 x 8.00" - "Made in Canada" - "18 LB" on the outer side.

Asking $15
Can be picked up in old Galt (Cambridge)
