Old Bakery beside Grey St.

By using google earth, street map and various other old maps and photos I have pieced together the old Bakery/Stables/tobacco factory complex.
I don't really remember anything about the buildings, and I'm sure they were knocked down by the time I was 7 or 8, but my landscape looks less baron now that I have it in.
I have also laid the houses to Princess St, all place holder but a good start. I have tried to get the correct number of houses in the street. I will do my best to match the houses/windows on all streets, however they will all use a varied but generic texture.
So all still very much blank blocks, I can now do the fun part and texture them.
Hope to show progress over the coming days.

Hi Derek

You're making very good progress!

Unless you already know about it have a look at this excellent site for maps of the 50's and 60's (and earlier). The detail is superb when in full screen and expanded mode:

Best wishes
