One of the main objectives for the recreation of the Paragon Station area is to accurately produce and render the dominant buildings that inhabited the area 100 years ago, which some still remain today. For a bit of a challenge I chose to pick one of the most difficult ‘The Royal Station Hotel’ which is known as The Royal Hotel today. This is a fairly large and extravagantly designed building that has seen several modifications and alterations through the years, so a certain amount of research was required to achieve the look of the period in question.
From Google Maps.
This is how the hotel looks today….
….but 100 years ago.
You can see it is the same building, but it is obvious that changes have been made.
