Toys and Games: Good Times in a North Carolina Mill Village


Author(s):
Abstract:
Although they had little money for toys and even less time for play, mill village children still found ways to entertain themselves at the start of the 20th-century. They used their imagination to create toys from corncobs, sticks, and similar materials. They played baseball and football with improvised equipment. Lacking radio and television, they enjoyed storytelling. They also socialized and had fun at church.
