Wombat Creek Bank and Gold Exchange – part 2

During the weekend a team of bricklayers went to work at the Bank.





In fact the bricks are printed on a photocopier and later glued on. Looks very 'substantial' for the time being, but I hope some 'trimmings' will enhance the look of the building.

An update from Church Street

An unexpected day off from work gave me the time to do the signs for the shopfronts in Church Street. By temporary removing St. Ursinus Church it is possible to do a photo of the entire row of shops.



From left to right you find:
An antiques store - it is in real shopfront somewhere in Melbourne
LJ Hooker Real Estate - perhaps not the only 'hooker' in the street!
TAB betting - Church Street is probably not as innocent as you may think
Church Street Spirits - well, it is after all Church Street
Town and Country Vet - an existing veterinarian clinic somewhere in Australia
Burke and Wills Surveyors - an unfortunate name for such a business (if you are not familiar with Australian history, they got lost whilst exploring the Outback)
Pet Shop - making sure the vet will stay in business
The Black Cat - perhaps another name could be 'Gentlemen Club'. Definitely not related to the Pet Shop!
'Shop to Let' - honestly ran out of shop names. Anyway it appears pretty run down
The Toy Shop - you should be able to buy to model trains and trams somewhere
The Rug Shop - again a real shopfront from Melbourne
Sputnik - selling clothes for the young adults. The year is 1963 and the owner got inspired by the latest Space craze

I am still working on Queen Victoria Market located adjacent to the shops and of course the long-time project with the Wombat Creek Bank and Gold Exchange.

Spot the difference

I spotted a nice photo of Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne, on the internet. After a make-over in Photoshop it came out like this:



It will be positioned towards the very back of the layout, so was it really necessary to improve the front. The shadows give it depth already. Anyway I made a few extra copies, cut out the columns, glued them to 1.5 mm cardboard and finally glue them in place on the front. Spot the difference.



I think it was worth the effort.

The sidewalls will be extended and a proper roof added. It has to wait until the hard lock-down in Melbourne is over and I can purchase a board for the the background. The market is in front of a curved 'corner' making the back part of the roof some of a challenge to get right.
