This House Would Never Be Built Today

Bellefontaine Cemetery and Fort, Elsewhere 082

This house shows the density at which St. Louis was built. Taking into consideration the street and alley, the house is a wedged shaped pile of brick. No one would fit a house so elegantly into the street grid like this nowadays.


  1. For anyone interested, this is right off of Gravois, on Potomac, @ Tennessee (?).

  2. Lol, yeah, drove down Potomac from Schnucks today, and I caught the sign out of the corner of my eye.
