In Keystoneville, in Keystone Square, there are four houses.
The Jacksons step out of the house at the same time as Mr Weisman.
"Good morning," they say. "How are you today?"
On the other side of the square, Miss Marks and Mr Rimmer have also appeared.
"Good morning," says Miss Marks. "You're as regular as clockwork, Mr Rimmer!"
"Good morning, Miss Marks. You're an early bird today!"
Off they all go, to the centre of Keystoneville.
Mr Rimmer works at the Keystone Garage.
Mr Weisman needs to buy a new chamois leather for his car.
Mr Jackson is the pharmacist, and Mrs Jackson works at the bakery.
I wonder what Miss Marks is buying at the hardware store?
All is quiet at the fire station, and the cinema doesn't open until the evening.
Oh dear, it looks like someone else is at work too!
Better call the Keystone cops!
These model buildings are probably made by Keystone - Keystone made toy garages and dolls houses similar to these. The two-storey houses here are about 2" high, and the garage is 1 1/4" high. They are made of solid blocks of wood, with the cardboard and paper litho wrapped around them. The little figures are by Preiser in 1:160 scale (N scale, in model railway terms).
UPDATE: Jennifer McKendry shows the box which these came in, labelled Keystone Wood Block Village. So yes, definitely Keystone! (Scroll down her 1940s page past the real houses and past Rich to get to Keystone.) And Callsmall has a complete boxed set, with labelled slots for each building, plus trees, walls and squares of grass to sit the houses on!
