DeSoto Avenue also has some surprises, such as this Tudor Revival latecomer to the neighborhood, which sits on a corner. The architect factored the corner lot into the composition, and the house works from different elevations.
But moving west, more vacant lots appear, punctuated by the occasional house. I was surprised that this two-family below has most of its windows blocked up on purpose. They are not boarded up.
Then there are three Modernist tract homes, each with a different color scheme. Sadly one of them is already abandoned.
I’m teaching a two week class on March 26 and April 2 at OASIS Clayton about the history of brewing in St. Louis. Breweries I’ll be discussing will include Anheuser-Busch, Lemp, Falstaff and others. To sign up, click here and search for class #141.
