A 'Book' house from Sydney

A ca 1930s dolls house from Sydney, Australia, which opens like a book. It came with a lot of furniture from the toy store Walther & Stevenson (closed 1968), and I think the house itself might have come from that shop too. (Anyone who reads my blog will have seen this house, but I thought those of you who don't might like to see it too!)
