The remainder of the Bremen Row is still under rehab, but many of the other small houses on the street are not doing well.
But this is a very important house, with a pitched roof that encompassed a now-filled in porch on the back. It dimensions give away its age. So cool, and I think it’s still occupied.
I like the way the tree cast shadows over this abandoned Second Empire house.
There is even a very well preserved Second Empire alley house. I love how Hyde Park has a front and back street grid. Many, many people lived in alley dwellings, and they were a sort of secondary street east of Jefferson Avenue.
The house that sits on the alley, to the left, is collapsing.
I will be giving a short presentation at 10:30 AM on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at the Missouri History Museum as part of Johnny Rabbit’s program, “The Spirits of St. Louis: Ghosts, Haunted Places, THE Exorcism, Spiritualists, and the Paranomal.”
