Hubley #22 Boat Tail

One last image of vintage toys from my small collection.  This is a cast-iron race car marked with the number 22.  The car body is silver with the hood, exhaust pipes and driver painted red.  I have not been able to find details on this model but it is marked 2330 – Made in USA on the bottom.  Most likely, this is from the 1940’s.

This car was made by the Hubley Manufacturing Company of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The company, originally incorporated in 1894 began making highly detailed, cast-iron toys in 1909 and continued in business through 1969 when it was acquired.  A few toys continued to be made under the Hubley name by a series of owners up through the 1990’s but they are no longer in production.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
