This may be in the wrong topic area, so please move if it is, moderators.

Please could anyone help with the rough date of the house that Johnny showed in the Hobbies album. He called it his Little House. I have one like it though, like almost all my houses it is in store.-It's almost flattened, but all the pieces there so I will attempt to put it back together when I can but would like to know when plans appeared in Hobbies magazines or sales if anyone can help. Also, what period architecturally you think it represents. I'm considering as my new little friend, Clover the all bisque doll's new abode as it seems generic early to mid cottage in feel, but would like opinions, please.

Feel a bit of a traitor to dear old DHP&P as I would normally ask once it was available to work on, but with all the gloom about this website possibly disappearing, thought I should jump in now. I hope we are all wrong!

Found Rebecca's article from 2014, in spite of Webs deciding to make life hard.
Thank you Rebecca!

Hobbies plan 2910, Jenni. Available from 1951 to 1968. See Rebecca's article, in the March 2014 magazine. Hobbies called it a Modern Doll's House but real-life houses in this style were being built in the 1920s.

Re-wording the above allowed it to post - I'd tried six times with my original text!
