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. (This image courtesy of The Auction Centre, Runcorn. Used with consent). 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 production run. Please see picture 8, previously, for a view of a typical No 50 interior.
