Preston Hall Park Museum Victorian Street

By gingerdelight    
When we visited Preston Hall Park recently (see Butterfly World photos) there was also a museum, part of which was a replica Victorian Village. Here are some of the shops on one side of the street, which I thought might look good in sepia. I have put the coloured versions in as well, plus some shots of various bits and pieces surrounding these buildings. We start at V1 and work our way along the street. Please read the notice in the final version - the last sentence cracks me up!!

Next time I will upload images from the other side of the street!

Thanks so much for all your kind comments on my digital art, I'm so pleased you like it!

Still in some pain with my back and hip, and I am hoping that it will go away soon as I am a bit fed up with it now!!!

There is everything here that I like Carol.Metal,wood,rope,gate,brickwork and even a little rust.

You have successfully captured the spirit of the museum shop made all the more authentic with the sepia. Charles.

A lovely set, Carol - has to be the sepia ones for me (though I might have toned the saturation down just a tad). And oh my! That notice in V9 is just so quaint, it really set me off Grin. In fact I think this is my favourite of the set as I love the reflections with that ghostly fabric apparently spilling all over the paving, and the lovely old sewing machine.
I do hope you'll be pain-free before too long Sad

A lovely set Carol. Can't make up my mind about which set I prefer, like the sepia for the aged look, but like the colour for the detail. I dread to think what the 'mourning orders' would consist of Wink. Hope the hip is improving. Moira

the coloured ones take the honours for us ,good interesting set,
Wonderful set of images Carol - what an interesting place, I love those old lace shops, could spend hours in them.

Hope your back & hip gets better soon, I sympathise with you as I suffer a lot with my back, I was only saying to hubby today, it's been lovely since we've had this week or so of warm weather, it's the first time in ages that I've not had to be taking pain killers all the time.

Take care
