Bob, your magazine rack is fantastic!
As is the added detail of the newspaper & Model railroader tied up in bundles.
Love it!

Frank, Pete, Dave, Greg, and Fred, thanks for your posts.

Here's the public phone and the local phone book hanging on a small chain. This one was
made from resin casting from one of my old styrene masters.


Long before people had cell phones, in fact before they were even imagined, if you needed
to make a call while you were out you had to find a public phone. When an establishment
had a public phone they installed these little signs to let you know one was
available inside.

Excellent! And the Phone Book is right there, and... "Operator!"

Or is this gonna be more like "Central...."

"Hi, Agnes! This is Bob. Do you know where Carl is?"

"Hi Bob... Yes, I think I just saw him headed over to the fire station. Want me to ring him there?"

AH, the old party line. We had those a few times when I was a youngster. I must say Bob, that magazine rack and display of current reading materials for the times', is truly...AWESOME I can't imagine any better modeling than what I'm seeing.

Carl, Pete, Rich, Ted, and Dave, thanks for posting.

I still want to make stuff to go on top of the case but I had to put candy in the case
so I could glue it in place and move over to the soda fountain.

Thanks Greg.

I have started to make stuff for the soda fountain and I dug out this figure that I
painted a short time ago. I would love to use him but he is WAY too 1950's to use in this store.

Bob, that new figure looks a lot like you did, in this photo that Ted shared with us of you standing beside your car, in the tribute that he built in your name.
I tried to re-post the same photograph, but could not get it to show.

Bob, It looks like Mr Alessi stocks homemade candies, a class establishment!
