Discovering Shaw, 14: Castleman Avenue Between Klemm Street and Thurman Avenue, North Side

Moving east from Klemm, we see more of the class Tower Grove area houses, with the imposing front facades, and the “four-up, four-down” configuration with the near-pyramid, more hip roof half third story. They almost all originally had front porches with balconies.

Then we have another one of those massive four-families, showing that apartment living was often very spacious and desired by members of the upper middle class.

More houses continue after the large apartment building, as can be seen below.

Towards Thurman, there are more simple houses, but still with a lot of style.
