ref. 28 L - Crawford's delivery van made by Meccano Ltd. in Binns Road Liverpool 1934 - 1940.
ref. 115 U.B. taxi made by Meccano Ltd. in Binns Road Liverpool in 1979.
Although it was illustrated in the Dinky catalogue n° 14 of 1978, this model was not distributed by Meccano. It could be obtained from United Biscuits ex Crawfords against four token wrappers from their new "Taxi" biscuits and a small amount of money. It was provided in a plain white box. Note the wheels fitted the wrong way around.
What were U.B. "Taxi" biscuits ? Any archives on this subject ?
