Here's what I think would be an interesting building to model, found it on the American Memory web site.

That's pretty interesting. Wouldn't be too difficult. Grandt Line windows and shutters would probably be a good fit. There are a couple of possible suppliers for the siding and shingles, either plastic or wood. Finding a nice double-truck trolley would be the real problem/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif

Yeah, and the larger higher resolution photographs give you a way to get as much detail as you wish to go to.

I do find it amusing though, that as usual the historic society just can't leave history as it is, but have to muck it up to what they think it should be.

Steve,

Way to go! My kinda building. It's interesting to see its placement--on a corner, adjacent to other similar buildings. Not to sound like a rivet counter (OK, maybe just once), some folks don't know what a town looks like and clump a lot of varied buildings on a slab. Not very realistic. My philosophy is "less is more," and it's best to have a handful of structures sprinkled over a broad area than to jam 50 of them into a 5 x 5 foot spot. That's just my opinion. Anyway, thanks for the photo.
