Thanks Bill and Dallas for your comments.
Bill, I think that is Barnicle Bob.

Here's a few quick overall shots. The only points of interest I can think of are:

1. The table for customers who have to lay down was a long table from 1/24 scale doll house material. I added the cousioning from Sculpey.

2. I tried to make a model of the colored ink supply bottle rack on the table.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob, another neat "seen", but wouldn't want to encounter Barnicle Bob storming out into that alley after discovering -- --- -- tattooed over his heart.

Maybe the tattooer might have a sandwich and beer on the table in front of him, you know, to emphasize the strict sanitary conditions maintained in the shop :)

Thanks Pete, Bill and Ted. We really need to get the sweeper to come down the alley.

Excellent, Bob!

Apparently great minds Do run in the same gutter! I was about to observe that the bus station and parlor could use a wino or two and some trash on the street. Love the dead bottles there!

Nice!

"Go Greyhound!" used to sound like an invitation for a pleasant bus ride, but the evidence of activities in that alley make me wonder if here it might be pleading to get away from there fast :) Very nice scene, Bob.

The cruddy sidewalk, empty bottles, and other small bits of detritus are excellent!

How 'bout dat! The back of the bus station is on the wrong side of the tracks. Nice job! (Well, maybe "nice" is the wrong word here.)

Cheers,
Dallas

Thank you Carl, Pete, Bill, Ray, and Dallas, I appreciate your comments.

I have tried to show two sides of life. Back in 1941 the bus station in my home town was always
kept neat and clean, not like later times when things went down hill. Even in the neater
cleaner times there were still those areas "down the alley behind the bus station" that were not
nearly so clean.

I have a bunch of figures primed and will be spending my time painting them. Then I will get
the model outside for some photos, I dislike the flash photos I have been posting.

I have been so busy with outside work and family commitments that I have not even thought about
what might come next.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob, It's ten years after your 1941 secene, but a discarded paperback copy of The Illustrated Man
would be an interesting surreal detail outside the tattoo parlor: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Illustrated_Man

Bill Gill's Tattoo shop looks wonderful Bob!
Though I somehow feel compelled to come over there to pick up those empty bottles laying around.
Now I wonder.... if Bill's shop has any packs of lick on tattoos with gum, or any Scottish tattoos?
