This is the original picture from the 1830's (I think it's called tableau de Paris), and my own 1870's dollhouse version:
|1830's & 1870's|
The second floor is the rich and fancy people.I made the lady with my sister in mind, but I think she became more of a my sister and me- blend.
Third floor is the middleclass. An old lady and her grandchildren sitting down to dinner ( I made the room with my own grandmothers kitcken from when I was little in mind). And on the other side, a young family moving in (with my own family on the picture).
In the attic lives the poor people. The street artist on one side, and the kept woman on the other.
In a way I kinda like the doubble life and the behind the scenes drama of the 1800's..and obviously the wide range of cool clothing! so I might be sticking with it for a while...
