Continuing with my clean up of my old (very old) western buildings, I've managed to get 'down' through the collection and finally reached two of the larger buildings, namely the County Jail house and the Bank.
Photo on the right is the bank and upstairs an Assay office and mining company.
Another view of the Bank
I've spent more than enough time, trying to get the new look Blogger working, on both Firefox (still not allowing me to upload photos) and Explorer, which allows me to upload photos (after I changed the default htttp optio ('<>' button), but the machine wants to put them whereever it wants, despite my efforts.
Apart from that and the fact is slow, I guess it's progress of a sort.
In other news, RL is a bit of a downer too.
Having had high hopes of being able to post something this week, that too was dashed upon the rocks of Blogger.
That's all for this week and whether not there will be anything next week, it's not looking good atm
