Road Name History:
Commercial structures are any buildings or other man-made structures whose principal purpose is trade. These can be high-rise officer towers, gas stations or fruit stands. Any structure where end-user customers come to buy things from sellers of that product or service are consider commercial structures.

This group will therefore include quite large as well as quite small buildings. Models of these buildings might be kits or pre-assembled. They might be painted or undecorated. They might come with a host of accessories and figures or they might be fairly Spartan.

Brand/Importer Information:
POLA was founded in 1957 by Horst Pollak providing HO and then later N scale European building kits. In the 1980's POLA was one of the first manufacturers to make buildings in G Scale and then dominated that market with its extensive line of quality heavy-duty weatherproof building kits. Faller then bought POLA in 1997. The POLA G buildings are being continued by Faller under the "POLA-G" name, while the other HO and N scale buildings will be marketed under the Faller brand name. Some of the buildings are also still sold under the Piko brand name.
Most of the kits have sold over several decades, hence can be found it at least three (3) types of different Pola packaging, reflecting their production period.

Pola structures were distributed and rebranded in North America by Atlas and Model Power, among others.
