Maryland Avenue Between North Taylor and Euclid Avenues, North Side

Next up is the long block from North Taylor to Euclid avenues, which starts with a double apartment building, which included a storefront on the corner, which could be supported due to the density of the neighborhood. Indeed, at the height of the Central West End, many of the apartment buildings in the area had famous restaurants tucked into forgotten surplus space tucked away on various streets.

The original canopies, hanging by just two chains, with glass panels in between copper brackets, protect the entrances to both towers.

Terracotta elements accent the red brick, which is a bit lighter than standard St. Louis brick.

Next come a row of houses, some restored better than others.

Finally, at the corner is one of the most iconic neighborhood commercial buildings, which once held the original location of Culpepper’s.
