I did my usual sorting routine.
The border went together fairly well even though I could not locate the upper right piece. I did not actually locate it until after my second work-in-progress image below being grey in color.
I focused on the yellow paint area first, the painter, the signs and 3 main vehicles. They went fairly fast together. The next round was the sky, trees and building onto the cars again.
Once all the object were completed, I was left with only the grey-cracked cement area which proved to be the toughest of about 100 pieces.
The matte finish is always nice on these puzzles.
