The pictures show a front and back view of this Old Unused Children With Toy Erector Set Real Photo Post Card. This postcard is not dated but it is believed to be from the 1910s or 1920s. The photo pictures three children at a table with a built Erector Set toy. Hand written on the back it reads as follows:

Davis, Dorothy, Paul

This photo postcard measures about 5-3/8'' x 3-1/4''. It appears to be in excellent condition as pictured. On the right side is the beginning of another photograph. Below here, for reference, is some information about the toy Erector Set:

Erector Set
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Erector Set is the trade name of a metallic toy construction set originally patented and manufactured by the A. C. Gilbert Company of New Haven, Connecticut that is popular in the United States. It consists of collections of small metal beams with regular holes for nuts, bolts, screws, and mechanical parts such as pulleys, gears, and small electric motors. The brand name is currently used for Meccano sets sold in the United States.

Patented in 1913, The Erector Set was invented by A.C. Gilbert in 1911, and was manufactured by the A. C. Gilbert Company at the Erector Square factory in New Haven, Connecticut, from 1913 until its bankruptcy in 1967. The Gabriel company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania bought the Erector name, and continued to make identical sets into the 1970s and 1980s.

The Erector Set is believed by many to have been the subject of the first national advertising campaign in America for a toy. Its great success made it part of American folk culture, although its popularity has faded in recent decades in the face of competition from molded plastic construction toys, electronics, and other more ''modern'' toys. The Erector Set was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong in Rochester, New York, in 1998.

Scores, perhaps hundreds of different Erector Set kits have been made over the decades, most famously the ''No. 12'' deluxe kit that came with blueprints for the ''Mysterious Walking Giant'' robot. Current ''Erector'' sets are actually Meccano sets manufactured by Meccano S.N. of France, part of the Nikko Group of Japan. They do not have the flanged beams of the original Gilbert Erector Sets. In the United States, since January 2008, these Erector sets have been distributed by Schylling Toys.
