The set comes in a large wooden box measuring 70 x 400 x 473 millimetres with a sliding lid for access. There’s an additional play mat (400 x 540 millimetres when folded) that is slightly larger than the box and features a town plan on the inside with ideas and additional pieces on the back (see photos), the play mat also sports metal corners and a fabric book style spine to improve durability.
The box contains 1111 (my son and I have counted them) Lego pieces, which vary from the standard block shapes to lampposts and motor cars; the full list is detailed below including colours (see photos).
All items show varying degrees of use with the box exhibiting its age (shrinkage, scratches, etc.) with most and the pieces being in very good condition.
Documentation wise, it contains a booklet titled Ideas Book No. 2 (for 6d). This contains 11 pages of ideas plus adverts for other Lego products. Additionally there are two notes that demonstrate how to put the bricks together to form a stable structure plus an additional two slips that state “No complaint can be dealt with unless this slip is returned. BRITAINS LTD. 186 King’s Cross Rd., London, W.C.1” .
