A "tube pack" containing a wooden Tinkertoy set (GRAD, No.146), from around the 1950's.

The box shows a picture of a sample Tinkertoys structure. Tinkertoys used long, thin wooden rods that could be plugged into one of the many round holes that were drilled into wheel-like "hub" pieces.

The box legend reads:
