The British High Street, nobody did it better.

An architectural tip where the formal stands shoulder to shoulder with the informal and where the informal leans shakily on the unlikely - a wonderfull mish mash of architecture, afterthought and 'who would believe it'  - and exclusive to this wonderful country, and unique to the world - and how it should be, something that'll be for ever England - until we sell it off that is !

So, and before we do, here are some drawings and diagrams that hopefully you will find usefull if ever you decide to build your own - and with a few photographs to show what can be achieved with a few sheets of card, a few sheets of plastic, and a little imagination.

Allan.

 The first picture in black and white and leaving rather a lot to be desired, and a regrettable crude learning curve from the 70's !

Later as means, methods and materials improved so did a better chance of turning the impossible into the possible.

Here then, a selection of improved High Street buildings  where modern materials made it all possible - I mean, where were brass etched windows in the 70's when you wanted them or, come to that, Evergreen moulded plastics ?!
