Imagine a town as a time capsule, where nothing has changed since the 1960s. Certainly, there are examples the world over but for the most part these towns have been abandoned, left to their own devices due to the ravages of war, nuclear pollution or simply changing demographics.
However, there is one town in America that still looks just as it would have in the decade that gave birth to rock and roll. For over 25 years, Michael Paul Smith has been building detailed scale models. On a 1/24 scale, he created everyday scenes from mid-20th century America.
Welcome to Elgin Park.
