Toymaker Bill Daly shows off his skill at handcrafting old-fashioned wooden toys, the kind that survive generations of childhood fun. A self-taught woodworker, Daly spent 40 years making toys for his own children. Upon retirement, Daly devoted himself to his hobby fulltime, much to the delight of area kids and adults.

The French Quarter Visitor Center is located at 419 Decatur Street in New Orleans.
