I understand. The style I call "architectural" - meticulously rendering walls, roofs, and other man-made surfaces - produces amazing drawings, but always struck me as extremely demanding and tedious, particularly in ink. My drawing aspirations tended more toward the rural; I've commented on the Lakeland Farm.

Thanks again. I began to waver towards the end, it was very taxing and made my eyes sore. The photograph I copied it from was taken in 1968.

Peat was used for heat, but the practice is now frowned on, it being fossil fuel.

Doing these one at a time, because they take so long. Another nice treatment and an interesting subject. You did well with the various forms of lettering and script on the signs!

I find "Peat's for meat" amusing in a country which historically has used "peat for heat". In fact, that's how I read it until I saw the full-sized version.
