The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

An Exciting Motor Boat Race

board game

Little is known about the American Toy Manufacturing Company, which produced the game An Exciting Motor Boat Race. Their location, Salem, MA, may indicate a relation to Parker Brothers. And certainly several game makers developed in the New York and New England area. The game itself, with a graphic of an early racing motorboat, probably appealed to little boys.
