Edina, Missouri Storefront

Copyright St. Louis Patina -2475


Update: The corner two bays facing the square were a bank, and the left full bay was a drug store. The building shows up as early as 1886 on Sanborn Maps. Interestingly, the current cast iron front does not show up in Sanborns until 1906 as gray bars, but the earlier maps instead label them. A dry goods and clothing store moved into the central bay by then. Seeing gems like this out in the country, largely neglected and forgotten, saddens me. Maybe someday. I revisited Edina again in November 2012 and March 2016.
