Jaymar #255 39 PC Railroad and Village Construction Set - Pt 6 Ranch House

Nothing dates a vintage paper village quite like the houses included in it. As new housing styles became popular they were included in the more modern sets. Today's Ranch House is most definitely a modern design. What do you think - Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie School of architecture? The low-sweeping roof, the narrow band of windows, the combination of brick and wood in vertical and horizontal patterns? Anyway, it is definitely not the type of house made by McLoughlin Bros. in the 1890s or Built-Rite in the 1930s. The house measures 7 3/4" (19.7cm) W x 3 1/2" (8.9cm) D x 2 5/8" (6.7cm)  H. Enjoy!
