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.

Apart from some very minor details, the layout remained the same throughout this model's long production run. Please see picture 18 subsequently for a view of a typical No 40 interior.
