Welcome to the Fish Market,
It is a busy day in the village at the sea. Lots of fish has been caught by the fishermen and plenty of people want to buy some. The fish however needs to be cleaned and gutted first before they can be transported to stores further inland. Pete O'Brian and his sons have been doing this job for many years and are good at it. Their fish market is well known for its good quality.
There is a bit of a problem with the roof. A recent storm has caused some damage and it is currently being repaired.
Pete knows Granny from the Bed & Breakfast place nearby. Her husband was one of the main suppliers and now that he has passed away, Pete has become quite close to Granny. Love is in the air?
Summer 2015, we visited the west coast of the United States. One of the places we went to was Monterey. In the 60ies it was known for its sardine canning industry. The waterfrontstreet, Cannery Row, and the Fisherman's Wharf, I used as inspiration for this model.
The model is made with 2200 bricks and is built on a 32x32 baseplate. The small ramp on the side can be removed is so desired. On the front side it has the local market shop. In the back, the main process room is located, where the fish are prepared. The loading platform makes it easier to get the crates on and off the truck.
The side of the shop, the back of the storage room on the first floor and the door to the balcony can be opened.
The model has 6 minifigures, Pete, his 2 sons, 2 customers and the roof repair man. The names used for the characters are fictional and can be changed if so desired.
