Vintage advent calendar

This advent calendar was made by my mum back in the late 60s or early 70s. I remember so well the anticipation of opening a new item every day in December up until Christmas Eve, when I finally got to open the BIG one... If you look closely, there's nothing up on number 24 yet. That's because it just wouldn't fit (it's a book. But don't tell him.) I decided to go for a set of toy farm animals for my son's first advent calendar experience. He's not expecting too much... Other than a sheep (again) tomorrow.
