NOTES: The German company Anchor Blocks (Anker Richter, owned by Friedrich Adolf Richter) began producing architectural toy kits known as Anchor Stone Building Sets in 1880. Each set of stackable building blocks was accompanied by instructional plans for the home assembly of the model. In around 1913 the company produced a range in the United States known as 'The Modern House' or 'American Bungalow' series, from which the example shown here originates. Each building plan represented examples of American suburban architecture.
