1930s Layout, central section, front
A white cast lead Greenhouse with green roof spine and red-painted brick-effect lower section, made by John Hill and Co ("Johillco").
The greenhouse appears on p.162 of Norman Joplin's The Great Book of Hollow-cast Figures. The book shows a similar-looking greenhouse with red bricking by Cherilea, but with an opening door and no green spine-stripe (The Johillco version is shown with the door moulded in the closed position, although the entire end wall-panel might hinge, and has a "knob"). By contrast, the Britains greenhouse had a 45-degree wood-panelling effect for the lower wall, in green.
