SERIES VI: ROUND ABOUT THE HOUSE
IV: 4505: THE GARAGE, SHOWING INTERIOR OF ROOMS ABOVE
The walls of the Queen's Dolls' House are here shown elevated, and reveal to our view the rooms of four floors. Below is seen the Garage with its fleet of Limousines and Touring Cars; on the first floor we see the noble Library, above that, the King's Bedroom and Bathroom, and higher still, the Boudoir and the Night Nursery with its adjoining Bathroom. An excellent idea of the arrangement of this marvellous Dolls' House is given by this picture.
