Come in and Play


Pollock's toy museum really is a gem.  Housed in two historic buildings the collection of mostly Victorian toys, toy soldiers, dolls and teddybears, was started in the 1960's. The museum continues to be run by the grandson of the founderMarguerite Fawdry.

I bet there are some interesting things to discover in there.
To answer your question, our higher education is not free but the schools themselves are non-profit. Students must apply and be accepted usually on academic record. The schools do receive government subsidies to run the schools but, students pay tuition. It's lower tuition for in-state students and higher for out-of-state. For-profit schools get no government subsidy at all and tend to cost more to attend but there are no qualifying requirements. Anyone, no matter what your grades were in public schools can attend. Lately there has been a lot of controversy over for-profit schools. That's why attendance has declined.

I love the figure of Harlequin above the store, urging passers by to enter the store.
