Tri-ang Dolls Houses Database, Vol. 3, 1946-1971 https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/ Tri-ang Dolls Houses Database, Vol. 3, 1946-1971 How to use the DHP&P Tri-ang Dolls Houses database Two metal-fronted No 50s of different vintages. On the left is the version from 1964-c1969; on the right a much earlier house from c1948-1950. (This photo copyright: christine jaeger). https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=201728835 201728835 No 50 1948-71 (Lines Bros)/1970-71 (Good Wood Toys)/1972 (Barclay Toy Group). Dimensions: 17 inches [43 cm] wide, 11 inches [28 cm] deep and 19 inches [48 cm] high. This model number was used twice previously - firstly for the smallest of the Mayflowers, in production 1928-31, for which there is no example available on site, and then for the second smallest of the Ultra Moderns, in production 1935-40, which may be seen in pictures 86 and 87 in Volume 2. In 1970-71, the No 50 was apparently being produced by both Lines Bros and Walter Lines' company Good Wood Toys, which he founded after retiring from Tri-ang. Manufacture in 1972, was by the Barclay Toy Group/Barclay Securities Ltd, who had bought the rights to the Tri-ang trademark, after Lines Bros had gone into liquidation in 1971. The Barclay Toy Group was itself sold in 1973. There is no evidence that the No 50 was still in production at that time. The house shown is probably an example of the very earliest version of the model, dating to c1948/49: it is Marion Osborne's opinion that dark grey roofs appeared on the first of these houses. These early models were sold with wooden bushes in tubs flanking the front door. These appear to have been lost in the house seen here. A photo of the interior of this house is not available on site. Apart from some very minor details, the layout remained the same throughout this model's long production run. Please see picture 4, subsequently, for a view of the interior of another early No 50 interior. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=201832515 201832515 No 50 1948-71 (Lines Bros)/1970-71 (Good Wood Toys)/1972 (Barclay Toy Group). Dimensions: 17 inches [43 cm] wide, 11 inches [28 cm] deep and 19 inches [48 cm] high. Please see the caption to picture 2, previously, for the history of the model number. Another very early example and one which is remarkably complete, having retained its roughcast chimney and the wooden bushes in their tubs flanking the front door. It is Marion Osborne's opinion that these dark red/brown roofs followed the grey seen on the house in the previous picture, so it is likely that this example dates from c1950 to c1954. From c1955, the wooden battens which extend the bays inside are no longer fitted (these may be seen in the next photo). The fact that there is no sundial in the decorative panel above the front door, as there is in later versions, appears to be original - there is no sundial in the contemporary catalogue pictures of this model. (These pictures are only partly reliable, though - Lines Bros continued to use the same catalogue picture for years, until long after the sundial had been introduced, and the tubs at the front door discontinued). Please see the next picture for a view of the interior of this model. Apart from some very minor details, the layout remained the same throughout this model's long production run, but this example's interior has been included to show the construction of the model when the main material had to be hardboard, owing to post-war shortages of plywood.

Please see its caption for the dating details. The strengthening supports in all the rooms can be seen clearly - these were necessary to prevent warping, because the houses from 1948 until the mid 1950s had to have hardboard walls, owing to the post-war shortage of plywood. Those extending the bays, which can be seen in the house above, were no longer fitted after c1955. (This photo appears courtesy of The Antiques Emporium, who retain the copyright.

The house shown here dates to 1959-62. It can be dated specifically to within three years by the absence of a front doorstep.

Dimensions: 17 inches [43 cm] wide, 11 inches [28 cm] deep and 19 inches [48 cm] high. Please see the caption to picture 2, previously, for the history of the model number. The dating of the house shown above poses a conundrum. It cannot be earlier than 1963, because that was the first year in which these transfers were used. The plastic front doors were introduced in 1964, but those houses usually had moulded plastic roofs, complete with an integral moulded chimney, and sliding fronts. The front on this house is what Marion Osborne has described as "pivoting" on two screws, rather than being attached with true hinges. In her book she says that she had never seen an example of this in a No 50, only in a 40, 45 and 55, although she hinted that a pivoting front No 50 would probably turn up one day. This mechanism, plus the transfers and the card roof would ordinarily date the house to 1963. It is the front door, from 1964 onwards, which makes this house a conundrum. Mixed details from different years makes for what Marion Osborne has termed a "transitional" house. The front doorstep - now, in fact, a short flight of three - has reappeared with the introduction of the plastic front doors (This photo copyright: Judy C). Please see the next picture for a view of the interior. More photos of this house may be seen in the Album "Triang 50, hinged front." at http://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=15673960 https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=195102080 195102080 No 50 1948-71 (Lines Bros)/1970-71 (Good Wood Toys)/1972 (Barclay Toy Group). This is the interior of the house in the previous picture. Please see that entry for details on the dating. Apart from some very minor changes, the layout remained the same throughout this model's long production run, so this house may be regarded as a typical No 50 interior, after the mid-1950s, once plywood was available for construction. In the example shown here, there is a batten across the back wall. This is one of the details which may or may not be present - later houses didn't have it. All the metal-fronted No 50s were painted flat white and had no stairs. (This photo copyright: Judy C). More photos of this house may be seen in the Album "Triang 50, hinged front." at http://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=15673960 https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=195102081 195102081 No 50 1948-71 (Lines Bros)/1970-71 (Good Wood Toys)/1970-71 (Good Wood Toys)/1972 (Barclay Toy Group). Dimensions: 17 inches [43 cm] wide, 11 inches [28 cm] deep and 19 inches [48 cm] high. Please see the caption to picture 2, previously, for the history of the model number. The house shown here dates to 1970. This particular house is one of the very last No 50s produced. It can be dated specifically from the brick and tile transfers on the front, and the red roof (green roofs were used in 1971 and 1972). The front door on the house shown here is a replacement from Hobby's. The original would have been plastic - probably red - in the same style as the yellow one on the house in picture 6, previously. The owner says, "I am told this house is unusual in that it has brick paper decorating the bay front. These papers are definitely original as the flower transfers are superimposed. Amazingly the roof is damage-free. I am told these red roof houses were made in [the former Tri-ang factory in] Merthyr Tydfil, [South Wales, UK], about 1970 by Walter Lines [trading as Good Wood Toys], after he retired from Tri-ang. I believe these houses were left plain white inside to inspire the owners to personalise them." (This photo copyright: Judy C). A photo of the interior of this house has not been included in this Album. Apart from some very minor details, the layout remained the same throughout this model's long Tri-ang production run and was unchanged by the two subsequent manufacturers. Please see the previous picture for a view of a typical No 50 interior. More photos of the house shown here may be seen in the Album ""Laburnum House" ? Lines - 1970 ?" at: http://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=14466995 https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=195102084 195102084 No 50 1948-71 (Lines Bros)/1970-71 (Good Wood Toys)/1972 (Barclay Toy Group). Dimensions: 17 inches [43 cm] wide, 11 inches [28 cm] deep and 19 inches [48 cm] high. Please see the caption to picture 2, previously for the history of the model number. Green roofs, as seen on the house above, date to 1971 (Lines Bros) or 1972 (Barclay Toy Group). (The Good Wood Toys version apparently retained the familiar red roof). Although both the Lines Bros 1971 catalogue and that of Barclay Toy Group, 1972, illustrates the green roof house with the tile and brick transfers to the bay, as in the Good Wood Toys model in the previous picture, they are absent in more than one known example, including the one shown here. The house seen above is also lacking the front steps. No information on labelling is available, so it is not known whether it was produced by Lines or Barclay. The green roof houses represent the very last of the No 50s. There is no evidence that the model was still in production, by anyone, including Good Wood Toys, after 1972.

Apart from some very minor details, the layout remained the same throughout this model's long production run.

Dimensions: 17 inches [43 cm] wide, 11 inches [28 cm] deep and 19 inches [48 cm] high. This electrified version of the No 50 was introduced in 1966. It wasn't listed in the next catalogue, which was issued in either 1967 or 1968, so the model was available for just one or two years. The battery holder was hidden under the roof. This may be seen in picture 90, subsequently. The next picture shows the interior of this model. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=197307018 197307018 No 50E, 1966 This is the interior of the house in the previous picture, showing the light fittings, which were fitted into the two upper rooms only. Please see picture 90, later in this Album, for a view of the battery holder and electrical terminals fitted in this model. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=197307019 197307019 No 40 1958-71 (Tri-ang)/1972 (Barclay). Dimensions: 14 inches [35 cm] wide, 10 inches [25 cm] deep and 17 inches [43 cm] high. This model number was used previously for the smallest of the 40s series, in production 1934-36, which may be seen in pictures 73 and 74 in Volume 2. After Lines Bros had gone into liquidation in 1971, the manufacture of the metal-fronted No 40 model was continued by Barclay Securities Ltd, trading as the Barclay Toy Group, who had bought the rights to the Tri-ang trademark. The Barclay Toy Group was itself sold in 1973. There is no evidence that this model was still in production at that time, so it appears that it was sold under the Barclay brand in 1972 only. The metal-fronted No 40 is the smaller, two-room version of the similar No 50 (pictures 2-12, previously). The 50 is approximately 1:16 scale, the 40 is approximately 1:18. The house seen above dates to 1958-62, evidenced by its card roof, metal front door, hinged front and absence of tree and flowers decals on the fašade. These were introduced in 1963. From 1964, the front slid open and the front door and roof were made from plastic. (Please see pictures 14-17, subsequently, for examples of later models). This is the earliest example of a No 40 on site. The exterior paintwork is original. Its chimney is missing. Early No 40s are also known to have dark red roofs, like the 1963 version which may be seen in the next photo. It is not known whether the grey-roofed models pre-dated, followed, or were produced alongside the red version. The interior of a typical No 40 may be seen in picture 18, subsequently. The interior of the house above is not shown in this Album because its ground floor has been divided into two rooms by a previous owner.

Dimensions: 14 inches [35 cm] wide, 10 inches [25 cm] deep and 17 inches [43 cm] high. Please see the caption to the previous picture for the history of this model number. The house seen above may be dated specifically to 1963, because that was the first year in which these decals were used on the fašade, but was the last year for the card roof and metal front door. Also, from 1964, the front slid open. (Please see the previous picture for an example of an earlier model. and pictures 15-17, subsequently, later ones). The front on the model shown here opens by pivoting on two screws, top and bottom, at its left side, rather than actual hinges, which the earlier version has. The example shown here has been overpainted in cream, with royal blue windows. Originally, it would have been white, with Wedgwood blue glazing bars. Its chimney is missing. The interior of a typical No 40 may be seen in picture 18, subsequently. The interior of the house above is not shown in this Album because it has been divided, and stairs installed, by a previous owner. This adaptation, and more photos of this house, may be seen in the Album "Triang number 40" at http://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=15827680 (This photo copyright: Paula). https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=201388537 201388537 No 40 1958-71 (Tri-ang)/1972 (Barclay). Dimensions: 14 inches [35 cm] wide, 10 inches [25 cm] deep and 17 inches [43 cm] high. Please see the caption to picture 13, previously, for the history of this model number. The owner says that the house shown here dates to 1964-66. It is definitely no earlier than 1964, because that was the first year in which these plastic roofs were used on the metal-fronted houses. The owner may have evidence for dating the house to within two years because the style of the Tri-ang label changed in August, 1966, and this house may bear the version in use before then. An image of this model's label is not available. There is no interior view available for this particular house in this Album, but the layout of the rooms remained unchanged in this model throughout its long run. A view of the interior layout of another No 40 may be seen in picture 18, subsequently. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=39387062 39387062 No 40 1958-71 (Tri-ang)/1972 (Barclay). Dimensions: 14 inches [35 cm] wide, 10 inches [25 cm] deep and 17 inches [43 cm] high. Please see the caption to picture 13, previously, for the history of this model number. The house shown above dates to c1966-68, because it bears the style of label which was used by Lines Bros during those years. (This label may be seen in picture 92, later in this Album). It is not known why, or precisely when, Lines Bros used the roof seen here, with its separate, Avon-style, white-painted wooden chimney, for the No 40, rather than the more familiar roof with its integral moulded chimney, although it had to be sometime between 1966 and 1968 to tally with the label. (Please see pictures 65, 68, 73 and 77, subsequently, for examples of Avon series houses with this white chimney). Interestingly, the Barclay Toy Group's 1972 catalogue illustration shows their No 40 as having the white chimney.

(This photo copyright: Susanne). https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=201379274 201379274 No 45 1958-63. Dimensions: 22 inches [55 cm] wide, x10 inches [25 cm] deep and 18 inches [45 cm] high This model number was used previously, 1936-40, for the 1930s house, which may be seen in pictures 97 and 98 in Volume 2. The model shown here is the smaller, four-room version of the six-room No 55 (see pictures 20 and 21, subsequently). The 55 is approximately 1:16 scale, the 45 is approximately 1:18. This particular house can be dated precisely to 1963, because that was the first year in which these transfers were used on the metal-fronted houses, but which was also the last year of this model's production. (This photo copyright: chris g). The interior of this house is not shown in this Album but the interior view of another No 45 may be seen in the next picture.

Please see the caption to the previous picture for the comparison of the metal-fronted Nos 55 and 45. The 45 was painted flat white inside and had no stairs. (This photo copyright: Michaela).

Dimensions: 26 inches [65 cm] wide, 12 inches [30.5 cm] deep and 21 inches [52.5 cm] high. This model number was used previously, 1928-33, for the second largest of the Mayflowers, which may be seen in pictures 94-96 in Volume 2. The house shown here can be dated precisely to 1963, because that was the first year in which these transfers were used on the metal-fronted models, but it was also the last year before the sliding fronts, plastic roofs and plastic front doors were introduced. Interestingly, this is the style of "laburnum" tree which normally appears on the smaller Nos 40 and 45. The taller version of the tree is usually seen on the Nos 50, 55 and 65. (Please see picture 15, previously, for an example of the style of tree shown here in its usual position on a No 40, and picture 23, subsequently, where the taller version of the tree, usually used on the No 55, may be seen on a No 65).

The original door was red or yellow plastic in the style as seen on the No 50 in picture 7 in this Album. The No 65 is distinguished from the externally identical No 55 (please see the previous two pictures) by having electric lights in the left and right upstairs rooms (the "coolie hat" design, as seen in the 50E, picture 12, previously), arched internal doorways and a staircase rising between the central two rooms.

Dimensions: 10 inches [25.5 cm] wide, 14 inches [35.5 cm] deep and 11 inches [28 cm] high. Dated by its inclusion in successive Tri-ang Toys catalogues. Not a dolls house, but included for interest, because it is a set of toy buildings made by Tri-ang. The catalogue description reads, "True-to-life model, perfect in every detail. It consists of barn, store, bunk-house, ranch-house and good supply of fencing which can be made up into a variety of layouts. Rugged "log" construction and finished in realistic, weather-beaten, natural colours". The owner says, "The first building is the barn. This is a big building, 14 inch by 10 inch and 11 inches high." https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196469635 196469635 Ranch, catalogue no 7516, c1951-55 The owner says, "Inside. Take the roof off, and the other buildings are revealed." https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196469836 196469836 Ranch, catalogue no 7516, c1951-55 The ranch-house, alongside the barn. The owner says, "...The house is 12 inches (30.5 cm) wide, by 8 inches (20.5 cm) deep and 5 inches (12.5 cm) high." https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196469837 196469837 Ranch, catalogue no 7516, c1951-55 Store and bunk-house.

Catalogue number and dimensions unknown. Different design from the dwelling-house in the Ranch set - see picture 31 previously, for comparison. Dimensions not known, but this model is certainly taller than the ranch-house. There is a photo of one of these farmhouses alongside a ranch barn, on Marion Osborne's CD, and the house is almost as tall as the barn. Although the external details suggest a 2-storey structure, inside there is only one room. Access is gained by removing the roof.

Dimensions: (1951-58) 24 inches (60 cm) wide (this is the only measurement given in the catalogues for those years) OR 25 inches [62.5 cm] wide, 13 inches [32 cm] deep and 22 inches [55 cm] high (1959-66). Three different designs carried this designation: first this wooden model, then an all-metal version (pictures 39 and 40, subsequently) which was in production concurrently with the wooden houses, 1958-61, before reverting to wood for the final design (pictures 41 and 42). The model shown here was also available painted cream (pictures 37 and 38, subsequently). There is very little information extant on the series. The house above can be dated after 1953, because it is front-opening. The earliest models (from 1951-53) were described as back-opening in the catalogues. There is not currently an example of a back-opening version of this model on site. Front-opening houses are definitely known from 1953. The house shown here still has its original double front door - these are often lost. (This photo copyright: maggie t).

Please see the caption to picture 35, previously, for the history of the Queen Anne houses. The model shown here was also available painted turquoise (pictures 35 and 36). The house above can be dated after 1953, because it is front-opening. Its front doors are wooden replacements for the original plastic ones, which, as is often the case, have been lost.

Dimensions: 24 inches [60 cm] wide, 11 inches [28 cm] deep and 16 inches [40 cm high. Please see the caption to picture 35, previously, for the history of the Queen Anne houses. This all-metal, open-back version was in production, 1958-61. Marion Osborne says, "The front door is usually missing. There should be chimneys on the roof and these have chimney pots according to the catalogue." Please see the next picture for a view of the interior of this model. (This photo copyright: Margaret). https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=195212935 195212935 Queen Anne, metal version, 1958-61 This is the interior of the house in the previous picture. These houses have open backs. There should be a solid balustrade in the same colour plastic as the stairs. (The staircase and balustrade are the same designs as were later used in some of the U and V houses - please see picture 89, subsequently, for a detailed view of a V staircase. A view of a staircase and balustrade may be seen in the V in picture 64). Note the plastic bathroom and kitchen fittings in the house above. (The kitchen fittings are only just seen on the left wall of the lower right room). These appear to be the same as those in the CEX. CEX fittings may be seen here: http://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=190123408 and here: http://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=193160704 ).

This final, open-back design, made from wood, followed the all-metal version seen in the two previous pictures. There was also a smaller version of this model, designated Queen Anne A, which was less wide. Currently, there isn't an example of that model on site. Of the house shown here, the owner says, "Exterior whitewashed with a hint of pale pink underneath!" This house has a few divergences from the catalogue description, which included a large external chimney rising from the ground on the left of the house (for which there is no evidence that one was ever present on this house), and no chimney on the roof (which this house has). Please see the next picture for a view of the interior. More photos of this house, may be seen in the Album "Triang Queen Anne B ?" at: http://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/album?albumid=15688856 https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=194579530 194579530 Queen Anne B 1961-65 This is the interior of the house in the previous picture. The catalogue states that this house has "printed interior decoration" (similar to the A, B, C Bungalows and the U and V houses: please see picture 62, subsequently, for a view of a U interior), but this is no longer present in the house shown here. The style of staircase, reminiscent of those in the back-opening Princesses (see picture 81 in Volume I), is also unusual. The staircases in these later models are usually the straight, plastic ones, as used in the metal version (picture 40, in this Album). Please see picture 85, subsequently, for detail of the staircase in this particular house.

Dimensions: 25 inches [63.75 cm] wide, 19 inches [48.5 cm] deep and 10.5 inches [26 cm] high. This single page leaflet, published by Tri-ang, illustrates a 5-room bungalow which was proposed, but which never went into production. It appears that this design was dropped in favour of the A, B and C Bungalows (pictures 52-60, subsequently), which first appeared in 1961. (There was a limited release of the precursor version of the C Bungalow in October, 1960 - please see the next entry). It does look as though this house was planned to be built from wood - rather more substantial than the paperboard construction of the A, B and C bungalow models. The front door on the design shown here is the same style as used on the R, S and T houses in 1958-61, and the metal-fronted houses after 1964 (see picture 47, previously, for an example of the door).

Approximate dimensions: 46 inches [115 cm] wide, 33 inches [82.5 cm] deep and 12.5 inches [31 cm] high. This model can be dated so specifically because it was sold exclusively through a reader offer in the November, 1960, issue of "My Home" - a women's magazine. (The November issue would actually have been on sale in the October of 1960 - UK magazines are "dated forward"). It is the precursor of the Bungalow C (1961-67). It was sold through the magazine before Bungalow C was released to retailers in 1961. (Bungalow C is actually listed in the 1961 catalogue as the "My Home" Dolls House). The C, which may be seen in pictures 52-55, subsequently, is the largest in a series of three bungalow models, designated A, B and C. The dimensions given above are those of Bungalow C - but it is believed that the "My Home" version is actually slightly larger. Its materials and method of construction are similar to that of the U and V houses. (Please see the captions to pictures 61 and 62, subsequently, for a description of the U's construction). This is the front exterior view of the house. The rear exterior view may be seen in the next picture. (This photo copyright: Rosemary).

Dimensions: 46 inches [117 cm] wide, 33 inches [84 cm] deep and 12.5 inches [31.5 cm] high This is the largest of the short series of three flat-packed bungalows, designated A, B and C. Their materials and method of construction are similar to that of the U and V houses, including colourful lithographed walls depicting external architectural details and internal furniture, light fittings and other accessories. (Please see the captions to pictures 61 and 62, subsequently, for a description of the U's construction). Bungalow C was the first of the three to be issued. Compare it with its prototype/precursor, the "My Home" magazine offer version, in the previous two pictures. (Bungalow C is actually listed in the 1961 catalogue as the "My Home" Dolls House - the designation changed in 1962, with the introduction of the two smaller models in the series, A and B). From 1962, Bungalow C was supplied with an ornamental pool to be displayed on the baseboard - this wasn't offered with the 1961 version. The car port is described in the catalogue, somewhat surprisingly, as "the main feature". The rear of the carport wing is very similar to that of Bungalow B - please see picture 57, later in this Album. The chimney in the central section is very similar to that of Bungalow A, but that model has a lithographed stone wall at the rear, with two much smaller windows. (The rear view of the A is shown in picture 60). (This photo courtesy of the Spielzeugmuseums in Nuremburg, Germany. Used with consent, via diepuppenstubensammlerin). Access to the model shown above is gained by removing the three roof sections, revealing six rooms and a hall. There is no complete interior view of an actual house available on site, but the full interior is illustrated in a line drawing in the next picture. The rooms from the left wing of the house above may be seen in picture 54; those from the right wing, in a different Bungalow C, may be seen in picture 55. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=197346950 197346950 Bungalow C 1961-67 Illustration of the interior from the Tri-ang leaflet, describing the assembly of the flat-packed house, originally enclosed in the packing box.

This photo shows the three rooms and the hall from the right wing. (This photo courtesy of KT Miniatures (www.ktminiatures.com), who retains the copyright. Used with consent). The rooms in the left wing of this model, from another house, may be seen in the previous picture. There is no detailed view of the central (living room) section of a Bungalow C on site, but it was very similar to the living room section of Bungalow B, glimpses of which may be seen in the next two pictures. https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=197399419 197399419 Bungalow B 1962-65. Dimensions: 35 inches [ cm] wide, 33 inches [89 cm] deep and 12.5 inches [31.5 cm] high The second largest of the short series of three flat-packed bungalows, designated A, B and C. Please see the caption to picture 52 for a note on their construction. (This photo above is shown courtesy of the Spielzeugmuseums in Nuremburg, Germany. Used with consent, via diepuppenstubensammlerin). Bungalow B is, essentially, the C minus the wing on the right, thus having four rooms and a car port. This model was supplied with an ornamental pool to be displayed on the baseboard. Access is gained by removing the two roof sections. There is no complete interior view of an actual house available on site, but the full interior is illustrated in the line drawing on the assembly leaflet, pictured alongside the house, above, and some of the interior details are visible through the windows of the actual model. The rooms from the left wing are very similar to those of the C - these may be seen in picture 54. A closer view, from another angle, of the exterior of the B, offering glimpses of part of the interior and a rear view of the carport wing may be seen in the next picture. The chimney in the central section is very similar to that of Bungalow A but that model has a lithographed stone wall at the rear, with two much smaller windows. (The rear view of the A is shown in picture 60 and its interior in picture 59, subsequently). https://www.dollshousespastandpresent.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=197407785 197407785 Bungalow B 1962-65 This is the same house as in the previous picture, but a closer view from a different angle. This photo offers a further glimpse of the interior of the larger section, through its windows, and a view of the rear of the left wing. (This photo courtesy of the Spielzeugmuseums in Nuremburg, Germany.

Dimensions: 24 inches [61 cm] wide, 16 inches [40.5 cm] deep and 12.5 inches [31.5 cm] high The house shown probably dates to 1962, because it is likely that the large garden board accompanying it was no longer supplied after that date. (The later catalogue pictures are truncated, removing the garden, and it is not mentioned in the text description in 1964-65). This is the smallest of the short series of three flat-packed bungalows, designated A, B and C. Please see the caption to picture 52, previously, for a note on their construction. This model is essentially the central section of the C Bungalow, which may seen in picture 52 but it has a lithographed rear stone wall, set with two smaller windows, rather than the C's large ones. Access to the one room, which is partially divided by a large "feature" stone fireplace, is gained by removing the roof. (The catalogue describes this building as having two rooms). Please see the next picture for a view of the interior of this model. The catalogue claims that the house has "a beautifully laid out extension garden", but this, in fact, appears to have been just a green-painted board, although it did have a pool similar to those of Bungalows B and C. The pool is missing in the example shown here. (The garden to this house may be seen in picture 87, subsequently).

It is NOT the same house as seen in the previous two pictures. There is no front view available for the house shown here, but there is no evidence that it had changed from the c1962 version, shown in picture 58.

All original finishes (plants in pots and baskets have been added by the present owner). Wooden bay to plastic ground floor window, wooden veranda and porch support. Plastic upper windows with opening lights; plastic opening front door. Large living-room window is non-opening. Wooden base, with Tri-ang label on underside, three supporting wooden uprights attached to fašade, wooden internal roof truss and external edging. Front has colour depictions of first floor matchboarding and porch plants printed onto paperboard fašade. Painted compressed fibreboard roof, impressed as tiles. Wooden chimney, drilled holes for smoke egress. Open back for access.

Open back. Four rooms. This example has all its original windows and doors. Three separate wooden uprights at the back. Uprights supporting the front permanently attached to the fašade. Uprights, front and back, held in place by washers and nuts under base board and in roof space. Walls in 4mm thick paperboard, described as "strongly made...printed board" in the 1963 Tri-ang catalogue, slot into the uprights. Two plastic opening internal doors. Hardboard ground floor and bedrooms ceilings. White-painted wooden staircase fixed to internal wall; white-painted wooden solid balustrade attached to first floor (both original). Walls printed with colour depictions of interior decoration, furniture and accessories in all rooms. Some of these houses were produced with removable cream plastic staircases and matching removable balustrades which rose from the living-room to the right bedroom rather than from the kitchen to the upper left room. (The owner of the house shown here had another U with this variation as a child, which dated to the first year of production, 1962. Could it be that the plastic staircases were leftover after the "Queen Anne" houses were discontinued, and that wooden staircases were used in the later U and V models, once the QA staircases had been used up?).

Photographed after restoration. All the stiles were missing in both window frames. They were replaced with card, painted to match the surviving original plastic frames. The original opening windows were missing. An attempt to make opening windows was unsuccessful, so the idea was abandoned, and the windows were simply glazed with acrylic sheet cut to size. The front door hinges were broken - the door has been re-hung using Glu-Dot substitutes. (It has been fixed to open outwards because of the way it's now furnished inside). Some of the printed paper flower decoration was very faded - this was repainted where needed with artists acrylics. The right side was more faded than the left - red highlights were added to the flowers to match the left side.
