Here is a nice old ukulele, decorated and designed by Carl Ed for the Harmony instrument company. There are some great big photos of the uke online showing off the neat cartoon decals and candy colored paintjob. Pretty neat little toy.
As a side note, Google has gone and scanned the entire run of LIFE magazine! A wealth of great photography (including many by my favorite, Margaret Bourke White), and journalism, unearthing small gems of knowledge like the fact that Fort Knox looks like a Banjo Ukulele from above.
