When I first look at the first I didn't like it, something about the green tint I suppose, but the more I look the more it feels historic, timeless.

The second is amazing for all there is to look at, and I'm sure I haven't seen half of it all yet. I especially like the real world-used look.

I could say I could pass on the third, but am intrigued by what I suspect is a manhole cover in the middle of the floor. What was it used for?

This is a wonderful addition to your series and a tribute to how well you were able to overcome the obstacles presented there.

Thank you so much for adding these! S-

Thanks Steve. You always have such a sharp eye for things I miss - the greenish tint is there, though mild, and is supposed to feel old, whether it achieves that or not :D I have no idea what the manhole cover is hiding but I assume, like in New Orleans, that it has to do with drainage since standing water is such a problem in these low lying areas that get swamped often.

The smithy was my favorite too, with all those tools and the glowing coals.
