    Imagine the travesty if someone with the home renovating bug got their hands on this gem.
    Taken 3 week ago... timeless.

    What a great home, with caravan to match the look.

    A great find.

    Awesome, if I didn't know better I'd accuse you of pinching something from an old architecture magazine, the owner appears to be a fan of the era from the caravan in the driveway.

    Love the image, great find.

    Hold on, we're talking about the land of the long white coud here — I suggest that this is actually an exhibit from TOMORROWLAND!

    Doug did a fine job of cloning out the Hillman Minx from the driveway.

    Thinking about it my home town of Oamaru must have had some progressive thinking architects in that period.
    I don't see as much borrowed modernist language used in regular homes from that period here in Adelaide.

    LOL.

    The concrete block wall and inlayed driveway are great details also.

    That's exactly the bits that my eye keeps coming back to! I keep expecting the roof to slide back and the Thunderbirds to emerge... :wink:

    A fantastic study, Doug. Well spotted and captured! There's a certain classic reverence in this scene, which you have a great love of and you have the excellent ability to harness that visually! That's very cool. 8)
    Feedback and honest, constructive criticism is greatly appreciated.

    Funny thing you say that,I thought the same thing.
    For me it is the landing and balustrade that gives the Thunderbirds style.

    It just looks like a caravan, its really for rescuing air craft with landing gear failure.
