A Blog detailing the beauty of St. Louis architecture and the buildup of residue-or character-that accumulates over the course of time.
CBOT is the building that first made me *get* the whole art deco setbacks-on-a-skyscraper thing.

And it’s worth inviting oneself into the lobby to take a look and snap a couple of photos, even though they are pretty swift to expel camera-bearing archi-tourists.
