The first of a serie of vignettes I'll build about old forgotten jobs :classic:

Here, a coal delivery man around the 30's.

Quite nice! The window trimmings are nice, as well as the brown/dark red brick patterning. :thumbup:

Very nice vignette!!! And a cool little niche with the forgotten jobs.

With a little modification, this building could easily become a fantastic modular building. It's been done before, but I really like the use of minifig legs, for curvy detailing  :sweet:

Very nice, really like the brickwork.

My great grandfather was a coalman. My grandmother often told me about his work. This is lovely.

Love the idea of forgotten jobs. Looking forward to seeing more.

Very nice little vig. The building detail is great, interspersing the dark red with brown is commendable, as dark red as a colour is a bit too intense for architectural use on it's own. The curvature above the second floor window is great, rarely do you see legs used facing outwards. The cheese above the curved bricks on the upper floor is attention to detail too.

What is missing I think, would be a little handcart for the coal. I don't think they had piles on the street like that.  :tongue:

Nice! Great reminders of a time gone by. Do a milkman next! OR a theatre with a nickelodeon!

That is really cool.  Brings back memories of the house I grew up in with it's coal room and chute in the basement.

I really appreciate your detailed post :wink:

About the coal pile on the street, as I wanted a vignette (and thus a very small surface to build), I choose to represent the delivery in that way, knowing that in was quite unusual ; but I thought it would make the scene clearer :tongue:
