It's been a while since I've uploaded the images of vintage sets taken at a 'secret location' (but soon to be revealed!), so today I present to you new images of sets released in 1970. It is interesting that the train sets are quite sophisticated whereas the vehicles, particularly the LEGOLAND ones, are very basic indeed. 1970 was the first year that Duplo sets appeared, albeit without the red Duplo rabbit adorning the boxes.
It's also interesting that in the entire year of 1970, LEGO released just 38 sets, 6 of which were spares for trains and 6 were US-only Samsonite sets. These days it's usually over 400 different sets produced each year.
