The De Smet subdivision sits north of Lindbergh Boulevard and northwest of old town Florissant. Of course, we need to remember that Lindbergh had already been laid out decades before as part of the US highway system (not the interstate system). The main entrance, above, makes me believe there were grander plans for an elaborate gateway to the subdivision that were never realized.
Houses are smaller but more diverse in this subdivision, with plenty of carports located on the side but also interestingly on the front of houses.
On some lots there are mature trees, probably planted around the time the subdivision was built, while on others there is wide open green space.
I’m curious if the sapling below in the front yard of this unidentified house is now towering over the street!
There are more cool photos from Vatterott & Sons showing the interior of models. Look at those lamps and sofas.
