A dolls’ house with a bomb shelter!

January 18th, 2013

An unusual 1960s tin dolls’ house has been brought to our attention which is unusual in the way it reflects designs of the time.

It was designed at the height of the Cold War between the East and the West and as such includes an integral bomb shelter!

Hard to believe now that the world was at the brink of a potential third world war (or worse) and thank goodness the superpowers made the right choices.

Take a look at this house. It’s a Marx metal dolls’ house, a Colonial Mansion which is up for sale on ebay in the States!

    So sinister. Terrible that people were kept in fear for so long.
