LEGO model based on four small shops in Alphen aan den Rijn (the Netherlands). Model from 2006-2010.
About this creation
The scene is based on one of the main streets in the old village of Oudshoorn (since 1918 a part of Alphen aan den Rijn). Since 2006 the area is detoriating rapidly; most of the buildings in the area are either demolished or in a bad condition nowadays. This small layout shows a small part of the street in 2002. From the left to the right: Hooftstraat 45 (1876), 49 (1908) and 51-53 (1898).* The red house was, apart from the annex, built in 2006. All other parts of the layout were made in 2010.


Hooftstraat 51, together with the most right house it was built in 1898. The old cornice is still intact above the more recent shopfront

I decided to make the street just the way it was, with all ugly shopfronts and alterations included. Especially the backside, located at the river Rhine, is a mixture of older and newer annexes, sheds and roof terraces.


Backside. A mixtures of older and newer buildings in different shapes, colors and materials

*) Hooftstraat 47 is a missing number. I have no clue why

Thanks everyone!
Quoting Tanduay Mulder great buildings, exactly the way they are! Keep in remind, there still there, yet. Trying to rebuild the Oudshoornse Kerk in Alphen a/d Rijn/Oudshoorn on scale 1/50. Will try to get some pics to put on MOCpages. Greetings from Alphen a/d Rijn.
The Oudshoornse Kerk will make a nice model! Are you including the stained glass windows as well?
