He suggested the idea of having the buildings based on characters from Charles Dickens' stories, so a shop would be based on the character of Oliver Twist. It would be a suitable choice of Author due to my idea coming from driving past Rochester high street. I'm not too knowledgeable about Charles Dickens, and so some research into his novels would be needed.
I have listed some alternate authors below, with example characters, just so that it can show how the high street can be adapted from another writer's work:
- William Shakespeare - Romeo, Juliet, Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello.
- Agatha Christie - Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Tommy & Tuppence, Ariadne Oliver
- Stephen King - Carrie White, Jack Torrance, Annie Wilkes, It, Andy Dufresne
- Jane Austen - Elizabeth Bennet, Fitzwilliam Darcy, Marriane Dashwood, Captain Frederick Wentworth
