Organ Grinder With His Monkey on Belmont St

I’ve been wanting this organ grinder for several years, and he’ll be my only new addition to Oak Valley this season.


Fire Wagon on Main Street

This is the original photo of an early 1900’s fire wagon, taken from the very beginning of this blog in 2011.  Look for an updated view in December 2015.

The Freeman Family

Preiser didn’t create any African American figures in its early 1900’s series, but I did!  The Freemans are one of Oak Valley’s most successful and respected families.

Magnificent Wild Horse

Occasionally, I will insert a photograph demonstrating scale.  This is one of my spirited wild horses in HO scale standing on a quarter.   Isn’t he gorgeous?
