America's contribution to the toy soldier, the "Dimestore" fig- ure, was introduced in the 1920s by New Jersey companies. The figures dominated the American toy soldier market until the start of World War II. The second type of Dimestore figures - "Pod Foot" figures - were introduced shortly after the war. They were the last metal soldiers made before the in- troduction of plastic toy soldiers began in the mid-1950's. Kanakos' interest in the hobby began by painting toy soldiers. Soon, he began collecting toy sol- diers and researching the history. Kanakos said he's created diora- mas for museums, attended toy soldier shows throughout the country, and shared stories with collectors from around the world. The most interesting tale he's heard so far, said Kanakos, was told to him by a man at an An- napolis, Md. show. "He was a gentleman in his 80s who was camped in Germany dur- ing the war," said Kanakos. "Bombers blew up the town where he was camped, and one of production, presented by the Great Commission Drama Society and directed by Marci Tilghman- Bryant, chronicles historical events beginning with slavery through the civil fights movement and beyond.

He packed them up, and brought them back with him to the U.S. "His wife wondered why the bomb couldn't have blown up a jewelry store instead." Since moving to Lewes six months ago, Kanakos has created a prototype of a deep sea diver which is also on display at the li- brary. Kanakos said he is explor- ing the possibility of starting a club in the area, and he'd also like to create more dioramas to dis- play. For more information, call him at 644-4646.
