Even after the 1962 date, specialty parts, such as LEGO trees/bushes, 1:87 scale cars and trucks, and other accessories, were still produced in Denmark.
Back in the 1960s TLG was very much involved in producing spare parts packs, as supplements to the LEGO basic and model sets. There were an enormous number of these (over 100 different) produced back then. These small packs had a sliding inner drawer and an outer sleeve.
Here is an image of the 11 outer sleeve images, along with the reverse side (brick image). These 11 images were used in all of Europe from 1960-63, except for the 2nd right (bottom row) image. That image was apparently only used in parts packs in the Netherlands. These outer sleeves were used randomly with different parts pack boxes... so theoretically the 11 image could be found on the over 100 different boxes... for a total possibility of over 1000 different combinations.
Here also is a pic of all of the 2x4 brick spare parts boxes, one per color. These particular boxes are all from the UK... in that they say "Made in Great Britain" in small letters on the side of the outer box. (This would date them to after 1962.)
Not to worry!! ;-)
British LEGO Ltd. (and their continental European TLG counterpart)... has this all figured out for you!!
You order one of their display stands (the one shown here is a different older one from a German Retailer LEGO Catalog, but the shelves are the same, just different older box designs).
... and British LEGO Ltd. sends you a 3 page installation instructions to put all of your basic sets, model sets, and spare parts packs into the display stand...
The LEGO Retailer, retailer displays, retailer display stands and everything related to LEGO... is in a new chapter of my LEGO collectors guide - LEGO Retailers (1949-2014).
... and while I'm at it... some LEGO displays from the early days... The Palace of Westminster... otherwise known as the Houses of Parliament... and York Minster... the largest surviving medieval church in the United Kingdom! Enjoy!! (Images courtesy, Phil Traviss and Eric Strand.)
I had seen a copy of this model a few years back in the UK "Building Ideas Book No.2" (otherwise known as a variation on the 238 Building Idea Book)... and didn't realize that it was a real model that was heavily "artworked" over...
In my LEGO collectors guide chapter on LEGO Sales History by Country, I show this very interesting 1962 image from a USA Toy industry magazine. I didn't know until a few years ago (when I first got this image)... that the USA Samsonite LEGO model shop was right here in Detroit!! :-) And these were some of the models I saw as a kid....
Here are a couple of "cheat sheets" from my Unofficial LEGO Sets/Parts Collectors Guide that cover some of the topics in your image.... flag types, and early (1966-68) train couplings. Too bad that you don't have a highly desireable 1:87 cast metal wheel car to go along with your small garage! :-)
Adelec, I was going to post these yesterday.... enjoy!
Here's 5 of the 10 models that were found in this plastic garage (261-268 and 670 & 671). They were sealed with a paper banderole and contained a small brochure inside. (Image from my new collectors guide update)
