ARNOLD 8 1/4" CRUISER,
ARNOLD 10" CRUISER,
ARNOLD 12" CRUISER
ARNOLD 8" CRANK-WOUND
(Friction Drive?) c.1910-1925?

ABOVE: I previously
had this boat listed under Falk.
A reader, Paul Stimmler, offered the following information. Thanks Paul.:
.... It is actually most likely Arnold because of the typical Arnold
painted stripes pattern
on the smoke funnels, and windup crank in the stern.
Those two cues are traditionally identified with Arnold. I would also refer you to Richard
recently published book on antique toy boats (2005)
where he has many similar illustrations on the Arnold page.
