Vintage Cardboard 2-Story House with Wall

Toy-wise, we're going to end the year with another series of vintage houses. The seller listed these as 1940s Built-Rite buildings and while I have no doubts they're from the 1940s I'm not convinced they're Built-Rite. There are no makers marks anywhere on the buildings and the cardboard is way to thin - highly untypical of Built-Rite's heavier stock. I'm including the brick wall in this post. The house measures 3 3/4" (9.5cm) W x 2 1/2" (6.4cm) D x 3 7/8" (98.cm) H .  The wall measures a total of 6 1/4" (15.9cm)  long but that includes a portion on each end which is meant to bent back allowing it to stand. It is 1 3/8" (6cm) H. Enjoy!

(I love these 'Auto Awesome' enhancements in Google's Picassa web albums)
