Where did Martin, Flersheim and Bonnet get many of their ideas?
A compilation of Martin, Flersheim and Bonnet toys with authentic postcards from the end of the 19th century and early 20th century.
These postcards and pictures have images of everyday street life from that time.
Martin, Flersheim and Bonnet have gained many ideas for there “Bonshommes” in daily street life but also during travels and probably also from magazines, postcards and newspapers.
