In the coming years – and with any luck this model should be available for a generation or two in the future – Melbourne residents will be able to. Even this close-up of the Manchester and Furniture windows in the model of the Smith Street store does not sufficiently reveal the minute details of the model maker's art in fashioning the many lines of merchandise in miniature on display. In the history books of the future, the department store will undoubtedly be mentioned, just as today's historians refer to the cottage weaver or village potter of the past.

The actual dimensions of the model of the Smith street store are revealed in this comparison with a large pack of cigarettes and a half liter bottle.
