Windmill crank toy

Origin: Germany
7 1/2" x 7 1/2" x 2"
Wood, fabric, metal and paint
Bequest of Mrs. Effie Thixton Arthur

A wooden two-story windmill and a one story building are attached to a rectangular box. Between the two buildings is a fabric tape with two human figures attached. When the crank on the side of the box is turned, the fabric tape moves so that the figures go from the lower building to the second floor of the windmill. At the same time the blades of the windmill turn. The buildings and box are unpainted.
