A mechanical wind-up toy railroad set, with large key, has Jay Gould circling on tracks that lead through a tunnel labeled "Court House" with openings labeled "Front Door" and "Back Door." As Cyrus W. Field turns a crank at center, Gould moves along the track and enters at the "Back Door" of the tunnel, then exits, ahead of a foot labeled "Judge," at the "Front Door." Caption: "The Gould Game" - Kick him out of the front door, and he comes in at the back.

Creation Date:
