Hi, there, I'm a Kiwi who loves everything old. When I was a child, my beloved English grandmother sent me Barton and Lundby furniture for the dolls house my dad built for me, as there was very little available in NZ. When I discovered I could keep on collecting on ebay, there was no hope for me! I've just bought an old 1924 DH/D on ebay and am hoping to get some help with restoring it, and will post pix soon. It is in need of a lot of loving care, still has remnants of the roofing paper on the roof and the red brick paper on the back. Inside, I think most of the old wallpaper was stripped and new wallpaper added. There is a vintage fireplace on the ground floor but I am not sure it was original to this house. Some of the original dark green paint on the front door is peeking through. The floors still have some of their parquet paper. The chimney and shutters have gone, unfortunately but it has a lot of charm!
