Vintage Papercraft Village

In  1934, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper published a fifteen part series of papercraft buildings for children. Although billed as "fold-up houses", the collection also happens to include some commercial buildings as well. Because the models are monochrome, they somewhat remind me of architecture you might see in the black and white cartoons of the period in which they were produced. Scans of all 15 buildings in the series may be found here.

Other Vintage Architecture Paper Models:
Lincoln Cabin
Six Castles
Lone Ranger Frontier Town
Printable Dollhouse
Moorish School Building
