Victorian House 1880 with Interior

This model was meant for folks a lot younger than I, but you know how it is... Was jolly good fun though (it says here).

The kit was issued as "Make Your Own Victorian House" by Rosemary Lowndes and Claude Kailer and published by Angus & Robertson, UK, 1981 (ISBN 0 207 95885 8). Base is 30.5 x 14 cm and it's 31 cm high. No scale is quoted but I think it's a bit smaller than the standard doll's house scale of 1:12. Some of the pages could be made up into a booklet describing life as it was lived in the street and in all of the different rooms.

Messrs. Lowndes and Kailer collaborated on other "Make Your Own..." projects too: "World of Fashion" springs to mind.


Can you spot the cat and dog squaring up to each other?

Very good. Looks like a lot of stuff to stick together.
Cat and dog: pic 4 second level from top just to the left of the stairwell, pic 7 has a better view of the confrontation.
That is a nice detail to add.
