Queen Anne 1951-66. 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).
