Dutchtown Right Along the Interstate

copyright-st-louis-patina-027

I’m continually intrigued by the houses and buildings that lean right up against I-55 in the Dutchtown area. There are houses that nowadays would never be allowed to stand so close to the right-of-way; in fact, some houses literally do not have front yards any more. Above is a street mere feet from the interstate.

The buildings are in good condition, and it is fascinating to see the wide range of housing styles.

    There was also a drive-in right next to 55 at Broadway and Meramec. Drivers could see the movie as they came south around the curve.
