I wonder where my mother bought this 7 x 4 in. Noah’s ark. Was it at a gift shop at Rocky Neck, Gloucester, MA? She and my Aunt Sue would often walk there at the end of a summer’s day. I used to take out all the animals and make them stand in line. The monkey was my favorite. These popular arks of the 1930’s were made in Germany, probably in the Grodner Tal region, home of many skilled wood carvers.
