Hyde Park in the Morning Light #23, Salisbury Street

As styles changed along Salisbury Street, the commercial corridor of Hyde Park, renovations occurred, such as the addition of this shop window on a giant Second Empire corner building.

This building may be very old, but was renovated sometime in the early 20th Century.

There is back porch, like many houses in Hyde Park.

There’s even this cool alley house around the back on 11th Street.

Another couple of very old houses were converted into storefronts, below.

And it still has its back porch, and even a small flounder back wing.

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.”

  1. All these images of storefront conversions and alley homes speaks to the incredible density once present in the City. I often wish there would have been a “street view” for these times. I would be lost for hours taking it all in.
