I don’t really remember what this building was, but it was a salvage business at some point, judging by the sign.
It is a mess, and the roof has collapsed, like a see-saw. Why, I don’t know.
Apparently they also sold tires at some point.
I will be giving a short talk about 1870s St. Louis on Tuesday, April 11 at 10:30 AM at the Missouri History Museum as a part of “St. Louis – The Fourth City: An Era of Greatness.”
