Grand Water Tower, Revisited on a Sunny Day

Copyright St. Louis Patina -8357

Update: The Grand Water was repainted in the summer of 2020.

The Grand Water Tower is still a sight to behold, even after all of these years. I have never noticed the bushes growing out of the capital before.

I guess I also never noticed how many people have collided with the concrete pylons at the bottom that protect the giant column.

I will be offering the rescheduled tours of St. Louis Place this Saturday, May 28, 2016 (tomorrow!) at 1:00 and 3:00 PM. The neighborhood has been in the news lately as eminent domain threatens the area with demolition for the new NGA site. But when examined closer, the neighborhood becomes a rich tapestry of people, history and architecture. Come explore St. Louis Place and see what made this such a special neighborhood for two hundred years. We will visit the mansions of St. Louis Avenue, the old Falstaff Brewery, St. Liborius and other homes and businesses that have called the area home for decades, or even centuries.

We will meet at the sitting area across the street from Crown Candy Kitchen prior to both tours, in front of the beautiful Jesse Owens mural.
