I saw a image on Shorpy that I thought looked quite cool so I thought I would try something like it in TurboCAD. The Shorpy photo is much much better, but I have spent enough time and don't feel like trying anything more with the TC render. I had a heck of a time getting the light scatter in this one so I ended up adding a bit more in Photoshop. The car(s) is from 3D Warehouse. It was a huge task converting the skp file to something usable (materials-wise) in TurboCAD. At any rate, I hope that you like it.

Here is the Shorpy link if you are curious: http://www.shorpy.com/node/21972

Nice building work Don,  though for me the cars would suit a greyscale image rather than a coloured image,

Curious as to what the circular curb and railing's are about. Love historical or just old buildings.

Thanks for having a look and for the nice comments.

Ken, maybe that is where they through the loafers. :-)

Seriously, the only thing I could guess, was maybe ventilation/heating between floors. Just a guess though....

Lovely, Don, and a great choice of inspiration, too.  Some of the Shorpy collections are moving to browse, and all of them are interesting.  Had to chuckle at your asserting the Canadian Red Cross over the US'!.    I'm wondering if the curved pits are vents to a vaulted basement or a water tank?   It's amazing that those deep, immense concrete beams and floor above are supported on quite spindly timber colums.  Google street view shows a five or six-storey apartment block at the location now.

Thanks Murray,

I didn't feel like designing a sign so I just did a Google image search for antique red cross signage, or something like that, and the one I found seemed about right for the scene. It is surprising how few there was to choose from.
