Please see the caption to picture 2, previously, for the history of the model number. Another very early example and one which is remarkably complete, having retained its roughcast chimney and the wooden bushes in their tubs flanking the front door. It is Marion Osborne's opinion that these dark red/brown roofs followed the grey seen on the house in the previous picture, so it is likely that this example dates from c1950 to c1954. From c1955, the wooden battens which extend the bays inside are no longer fitted (these may be seen in the next photo). The fact that there is no sundial in the decorative panel above the front door, as there is in later versions, appears to be original - there is no sundial in the contemporary catalogue pictures of this model. (These pictures are only partly reliable, though - Lines Bros continued to use the same catalogue picture for years, until long after the sundial had been introduced, and the tubs at the front door discontinued). Please see the next picture for a view of the interior of this model. Apart from some very minor details, the layout remained the same throughout this model's long production run, but this example's interior has been included to show the construction of the model when the main material had to be hardboard, owing to post-war shortages of plywood.
