You're welcome ..... at the Crossroads Coffee house

Recommended Posts

The title says it all ! This was the reincarnated Crossroads Coffee house that opened in Richmond Virginia in 1968 . This was actually an extension of then Richmond Professional Institute's campus Ministry . In 1969, RPI merged with the Medical College of Virginia and hence the current name , Virginia Commonwealth University. This school which once held classes in turn of the century homes has now torn down whole blocks of these homes and have replaced said structures with some questionable and modernistic structures . Meanwhile , many grand buildings have been spared . The 1894 Queen Anne residence located at 1205 West Franklin street was never in any danger . This is actually the final chapter as I was asked by a conglomerate of people in 2015 to do this building in 1-24th scale .

Currently , there are two events to see this building ! The first is October 20th , Saturday at the VFW Norfolk Virginia at the 26th annual Tidewater Automotive modelers show . Google TAMS , you should find details there .

The second is the Holidayfest of lights and miniatures show , part of the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond Virginia . That show opens in the Laura Robbins Library and I'll be on hand November 23rd , opening night . That show runs to January 2019 .

The real building itself is very interesting from an architectural point of view, and your rendition of it as a scale model is really good Ellen.

This should be a particularly successful exhibit at the venues that you have lined up.
