Tri-ang Minic Ships (display)

A three-section 1:1200 rendering of Dover Harbour with cliffs, roads and railway, designed to go with the Tri-Ang Minic range produced between 1959 and 1964.

These landscape sections were designed specially for shop displays, and only about a hundred were made. They were manufactured by the Young and Fogg Rubber Co. Ltd. makers of rubber toys who were bought out by Lines Brothers Ltd. in around ~late 1957, just as the Minic Ships range was being conceived.
