The Farm (display)

A short parade of shops made from tough printed card with forecourt, manufacturer unkonwn.

The shops are three-dimensional, with open shop windows containing shop displays.

From left to right:

  • Shopfront: "GEO.BROWN FAMILY BUTCHER"
  • Vehicle entrance to a courtyard with built-over first storey, with sign for "GENERAL STORES LTD."
  • Shopfront: "GENERAL STORES LTD."
  • Forward-jutting shopfront, "NORTH SEA FISHERIES".

The common building frontage hinges (with the two forward strips of ground overlapping) to create either a flat frontage or a corner.
