Update: The building above and in the last photo was destroyed by fire in late October of 2022 ; I photographed it one last time a couple of weeks before its destruction. The building below was gutted by fire in January of 2017.
It’s been a couple of years since I came down here to take pictures of the old cold storage warehouses, and to see how they’ve been doing.
It’s been almost two years since the fire, and the old cold storage warehouse has not been torn down. I guess it will stay, for the time being.
I still think there is so much potential for these beautiful buildings.
Those interested in learning more about my research of the Lemp family and their brewery can attend my lecture at the Missouri History Museum in conjunction with Johnny Rabbit’s Supernatural St. Louis?today, Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at 10:30 in the Lee Auditorium.
