A Mystery Dolls House in South East London

These photos were taken by a lady called Loretta-may, who would like help dating the dolls house, as she has been asked to help selling it. It belongs to Loretta-may?s mother?s neighbour, who bought a house approx. 40 years ago in Brockley in south-east London, and the dolls house was in the house as the seller couldn't get it out. When she moved to next door to Loretta-may's mother, she took a window out to take it with her as she liked it so much. It's very big, heavy and solid: height 3ft, width 4ft 7ins, depth 3ft. It also sits on a box type construction that holds the wires and workings for the lights. Loretta-may is unsure if they work. There is also a big box of old hand made furniture, and around 60 black and white photos of the house taken with the furniture as well as some framed photos of the dolls posing in rooms with furniture. The dolls house seems to have 2 addresses on the house and fences, one in Bruton Street, Mayfair (London) (the same road Queen Elizabeth was born in) and one with a made-up south east London street name, All Toffs Road SE18 (or possibly SE13). The side door has number 20 beside it.
