Homecrafters make toys for mountain children, 1944

Posted on December 25, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Lexington Homecrafters posed with some of the toys they made for underprivileged mountain children for Christmas in December 1944. The organization is composed of Lexington business and professional men who operate home workshops as a hobby. These men made nearly 500 toys for distribution and included dogs, wagons, trains, rocking chairs, cars, stick horses and other toys. They were to be distributed through radio listening centers operated by the University of Kentucky in Mozelle in Leslie County, south of Hyden. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
