Sewickley, PA, in fall
Thursday, March 4, 2010 16:16 GMTBOSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) One Boston man loves his hometown so much, hes recreated it in his own home.
Michael Paul Smith is paying homage to where he grew up the small town of Sewickley, Pennsylvania by building a replica of the area as it was in the 1950s inside his house.
Smith has re-made every building from memory, fully-furnished them with carpeting and furniture from the era, and bought classic model cars online that resemble the cars from his old hood.
He then takes photos of the models that look so much like the real thing, no one would think theyre only about 11-inches tall.
Though he admits the project makes it seem like he doesnt have a life, Smith gets joy and satisfaction from re-creating Sewickley.
The photos seem to strike a chord with people, who email Smith all the time to ask if they can come over and play in his neighborhood.
