Gipton 'Family Allowance' Toy Faire, Wykebeck Community Centre (Gipton)
Black & White image6th December 1984. Image taken at the Wykebeck Community Centre during one of two 'Family Allowance' Toy Fairs. The other was held on the same day at the Henry Barran Centre. Local residents in possession of a Family Allowance book were able to buy new and quality second-hand toys as Christmas presents for their children. These were offered at a much cheaper price than in the shops, sometimes between only 10p and 25p. Many toys were donated to the committees and toy wholesalers gave substantial discounts. The Christmas Toy Bonanza was held annually.
