Dollhouse with a Fallout Shelter

Eartha Kitsch found a dollhouse for sale at eBay that was manufactured in 1962. That was the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis and shortly after the construction of the Berlin Wall. Americans were naturally concerned with the possibility of nuclear attack, and many people built fallout shelters. While most real shelters were underground, that was impractical in a dollhouse, so this one is just off the kitchen. No wonder the model didn't sell well, and is now considered rare!

I was ready to be similarly snarky here, but it doesn't hold up: If you read the actual article, it's clearly not just a pantry: cinderblock walls, air filtration, gasoline, emergency lights, first aid kit, radio, clock, calendar.
