Victorian commercial block of stores

The Palace Drug Store at the far left comes from a Kibri of Faller kit with a modified roof (note the flower pots and plants on the second-storey window sills made of beads and ground foam), the gray building with the News Depot sign is a Magnusson resin kit, the building containing both Sam's Clothing and the flower shop is a later Magnusson plastic kit, the Charles Fess Cigar and Tobacco Shop was scratchbuilt from plastic clapboard, Campbell Scale Model shingles, Grandt Line Windows and door, and the shoe store indicated by a golden boot at far right is another Magnusson plastic kit (now sold by Design Preservation Models). They all sit on a plastic sidewalk I scored, painted with Floquil concrete, and then rubbed with some real dirt. [Scroll right to make sure you see the entire block — GPL.]
