Although I had finished my High Street diorama, I gave it an extra scene. I also will add some missing information.
I also noticed that I did not publish a picture of the side of the shop. The shop side has some posters from the early 1900’s era.
Wenlock gave the suggestion to add a hot chestnut seller to the scene. So, I bought one by Langley models. I also tried to improve my painting. For this I got some feedback from an employee of a Wargame shop in Utrecht. I was very pleased with his kind support.
And a little story behind the scene.
In front of the shop is Mrs Cook with her daughter Elizabeth. Some what further in the street is her elder brother Edmund. He is watching Mr. John Allnutt who sold his hot chestnuts by his barrow. Mr. Allnutt was always very good humoured and could tell some fantastic stories. Edmund hoped that his mother would buy some chestnuts. He likes them with his Christmas sprouts.
I hope you like the result.
Comments and suggestions are as always welcome.
