Welcome to Peter Sullivan's Meccano (R) pages

Curious information on Meccano UK's earlier exports to the Swiss market and Meccano France's outfits.  Among the examples are four 1914-1930 outfits rescued from the dusty top shelf of a toy shop in Geneva some years ago! Unraveling the muddled up contents raised some interesting mysteries!  Enjoy these pages and explore certain facets of what was happening outside of the UK in the fascinating history of Frank Hornby's Meccano company.
