Some of you probably remind my coal delivery man and my project of making a few vigs about "forgotten" jobs ; here is the second one : a european street grinder around the year 50-60's.

I remember your coalman. This is lovely as well. :classic: I like his grinding wheel.

I may be showing my american background, but it did take me a while to figure out what a street grinder was. I am assuming he goes from house to house sharpening knives and such?

Next time someone tells me that yellowed bricks and plates are useless, I'll refer them to this MOC. Yet another perfect example of how realistically these can be used.

Nice job - and I like the understated /simple design of the post-war building. Very thematic.

Very nice MOC Ezechielle. A simple yet very creative build. Excellent work, I hope to see more of these types of creations default_classic.gif

Great moc indeed. I love how you created the grinder and how you used old yellowed bricks to give the building wear. :thumbup:

Nice vignette :D

And just so you know, the job still exists :) the guy drives a VW-transporter nowadays though, but he still comes every year asking if we needs anything sharpened.

Loving the use of the yellowed bricks on the walls. Also like how you mixed in the red bricks. MOC looks brilliant.
