Nice job, George!

Wow, Dave, thanks for the heads up on that--I am not on Facebook and probably would have missed it.  That really makes my day!

Always want to be sure modelers/photographers get their proper credit. Well deserved, George!

"Wacky!"  They shouldn't condone that type of kit building behavior. It just encourages more outrageous stuff.  I have what the immortal Frank Zappa termed "a taste for the bizarre."

Indeed!  I have to wonder if Andy Warhol is shaking his head in disbelief or laughing his rear end off.  :)
Still, kind of fun. Heck, I'm still proud of my third place finish for classroom president in third grade! Don't ask how many people ran. ;)

I took the completed structure outside for some real light photos. Couldn't find a vantage point without an out-of-scale background, though.


The roof-top dance floor.


Next door, more mundane chores in progress--hanging laundry.


The tavern corner. The lunch crowd is starting to come in.


The following photos were kindly loaned to me by Maggie at the Upper Harbor Historical Society and Tourism Board:

Front of the Mermaid Avenue Jewelry store, circa 1937. A pencil notation on the back of the photo identifies the woman stepping off the curb as local socialite and adventuress Nora Cowslipper. She disappeared while unicycling in the Italian Alps about a month later. This is said to be the last picture of her:


A polaroid, taken from the roof of the bus depot across the street, of Madamoiselle Zola's shop. This photo captured her housekeeper, Uberta, on the porch in the act of shooing away the street performer who has just set up on the sidewalk below.


A circa 1962 photo of the jewelry store, cropped for use as a postcard. This image caused a sensation because it appeared to show the ghost of missing socialite Nora Cowslipper as she was last seen in town.  In 2012 the store and street corner was "investigated" by television ghost hunters.  Although many suspicious blurs were captured on grainy video, no evidence turned up that the ghost of Nora Cowslipper still haunts the locale.

George - great modelling and story telling.  You've really brought the scene to life.

Cheers, Mark.
