Headline: These toys include a Rolls-Royce, a Streamline bus and a fire engine

Summary: The bus on the right might be a No.29B Streamline Bus, possibly the green with dark green version. If the things over the wheels are 'spats' it might have been made between 1947-1950. The car on the left could be a No.30B Rolls-Royce Car in two-tone maroon and light green. If so, it was made from 1935-1950.

  • Help the British Library tag a million images

    Some of the million images the British Library have released on Flickr Commons have been added here for you to play with. The tags you add will help people find these historic images.

    They have asked people to use these special tags where appropriate: 'map', 'letter'+theletter e.g. LetterA, 'architecture', 'decoration', 'landscape', 'music', 'portrait', 'fashion'. If the image needs rotating, add 'rotatec' or 'rotatecounterc'.
