The Worthingon, Aladdin’s One Year Model

Have you seen this house?

Of all of the Aladdin Ready Cut homes I have only seen the Aladdin Worthington offered in one catalog. Until a few years ago I had never seen an example of an Aladdin Worthington either!

The Aladdin Company was located in Bay City Michigan and most of the Aladdin models were built in Bay City but not the Worthington.

The Worthington was only offered in the no 32 catalog which Aladdin published in 1920. It was a fine house. I wonder why a model was never built in Bay City Michigan?

Here is the only known Aladdin Worthington and it is in Hockessin, De. Yes, the homeowners know, or should know, I identified it for their neighbors a few years ago.

Here's the Aladdin 1920 Worthington floor plan. It is very similar to the Aladdin Brentwood. The same room arrangement with different measurements. The Brentwood was a very popular house so I don't think the floorplan was the problem. One year, 1920, and then it was gone. Gone as fast as it appeared! Poof!

I understand that this house, as well as another Aladdin model, was ordered for National Vulcanized Fiber in Yorklyn.
