Jennys Home Lighting Set

From The Brighton Toy and Model Index

The Jennys Home Lighting Set was designed to allow electrical lighting of a Jenny’s Home room box. Since the room boxes had clear removable ceilings that didn’t lend themselves to ceiling-mounted lights, the sets came with table lamps, with trailing wires that ended in a special plug.

Design

Ingeniously, the low-height radiator profile moulded into the rear of a room had the first few radiator recesses on a separate removable plastic panel, which could be taken out and replaced with a lighting set plugboard that took a number of plugs.

Also ingeniously, the plastic battery compartment that powered the lighting set was camouflaged as a typical early-1960s asymmetrical angled stone-patterned bungalow chimney, suitable for putting alongside or behind the room-boxes.
