Marcus Avenue and Environs, The Western Greater Ville

The Greater Ville is the horseshoe-shaped neighborhood that wraps around the Ville.

Update: Actually, now I do.

I don’t have a separate tag for the Greater Ville, but originally it was the white area, and the Ville “proper” was African American.

But the old shotguns shacks of Elleardsville continue out on the side streets.

There is some beautiful architecture, which is sadly going to waste.

The building below would be worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in South St. Louis.

Look at the glazed green brick on the interior of the front porch below.
