Hyde Park in the Morning Light #17, 3900 Block of 11th Street

These little beautiful Italianate houses face I-70, their property values ruined.

But look at the beautiful cornice that still survives, looking like it’s in great condition.

This large store building anchors the row; one can imagine how dense the neighborhood used to be.

The exterior staircases allowed access to upper stories, where the storekeeper often lived.

There’s this little guy, too. I’m not sure about the paint scheme.
