The Doodlebug Spe-Da-Way


We just received a new donation to our collection in the form of a three wheel ride-on pump mobile, the Doodlebug Spe-Da-Way.

 
It's made of pressed steel and cast iron by Beckley-Ralston Co. of Chicago, Ill.  It was donated and used by Joann Joye and her sister Billi Cline who lived on Terrace Street in Auburn in a house their parents built in 1940.  The sisters received the toy in 1945. 

 

If your spring cleaning turns up something that might be great in our museum collection give Kasia, our curator of collections, a call at 530-889-7705.
