things I collected when I was a kid by Mal Walker...
1) Cigarette packets (favourite packet 'Passing Cloud'.
Autographs (best Stanley Matthews)
Bottle tops (esp.beer bottles)
Dinky Cars (favourite 'Railton Mobil Special')
Conkers (best was a thirtysixer)
Marbles (favourite yellow & blue)
Cigarette Cards (favourite Dickens characters 50 set ...now framed
Train numbers (this I loved dearly and still miss the steam engines)
Car Numbers (first a #1 then #2 etc)... The Mayor's car was VF1
so a good start.
Matchboxes (a matchless hobby)
You forgot shells! Every child did that!
to the list...
