Focal Point: 326 Taxi Cab Set • Hubley – 1949
By Steve Butler
INQUIRIES FROM TWO avid collectors instigated a trip to the factory catalog file cabinet to extract two catalogs from Hubley, one from 1949 and the other from 1950. The subject of concern was Hubley’s 326 Taxi Cab Set, which was mentioned previously in the 2008 issue of Antique Toy World. Comparison of two catalogs found that two different sets were issued using the same model number and name but not identical contents.
The 1949 Hubley catalog illustration pictured and described the contents in part as being “three assorted color taxi cabs, taxi stand bus stop, and parking meter.”
