Update: Here are some more photos from this area in 2019.
I returned to that area just north of the Central West End near Lewis Place, and checked in on some of the houses that I had photographed before. The apartment building below has continued to deteriorate, though the collapsed front porch has been cleaned up.
The house next door sits empty as well, with its windows missing, exposed to the elements.
There may be some good news to report about the amazing house below; stay tuned and I will see what I can report in the future.
And finally, there’s this gem of the Queen Anne style, with heavy stone lintels and fish scale ornament along with that stunning turret. There were more houses like this everywhere around the city.
