North Side of Francis Park, St. Louis Hills

South Jefferson and St. Louis Hills 030

Heading clockwise around Francis Park, we encounter this little Orthodox church, and then a string of apartment buildings on the north side of the park. Like their Nineteenth Century ancestors, I always remark at what great lengths builders go in this city to camouflage multi-family dwellings. The architecture defies easy explanation of style, they’re a mix of influences from around Europe and epochs.

    It appears that the first apartment building has a sort of penthouse on the roof?

    You forgot to include pictures of the neo-gothic Saint Gabriel Catholic Church which is one of the most impressive structures in St. Louis Hills. Also, don’t forget to take pictures of St. Louis Hills Estates and Saint Raphael Catholic Church on Jamieson.
