Paint Shop Pro 1930 by Yampimon

Currently unavailable for purchase


This builders’ merchants can be traced back to 1921, when brothers Joseph and William Humphries first traded in Oldbury, West Midlands.
The shop looks as it would have done in the late 1930s, when it was supplying a range of fireplaces, grates, W.C.s, sinks, paints, varnishes and wallpapers.
Take a look at the paint chart on the bottom shelf showing a range of just 14 colours. There were no Banana Blushes and Girly Pinks in those days.

    Love this Yampi. Cleverly done.
    Love Colleen2012

  • Thanks Colleen, The idea I had with this was to try to create a trompe l’oeil effect. The framing and tweaking of perspective on this took an age to get it so the borders of the picture are the edges of the shelving.

  • Thank you, I like to do a bit of research on my ‘old’ pictures to see what the story is behind them.
