Playthings of the Past — Toy Guns

Toy Gun

Toy guns.

Toys mimic the world of adults. Miniature weapons, including toy swords, pistols, and rifles, have been popular through time for children's war games. The predecessors of today's plastic ones, these metal toy guns were recovered from the Old Stone House in Rock Creek Park and Manassas National Battlefield Park.
