I feel like I’ve photographed these wood frame houses before.
They’re continuing to deteriorate, sadly. An MHDC application has been made for the house on the right.
Look at the terracotta detailing on that house on the left!
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.”
