I love the area of the riverfront north of Laclede’s Landing; anchored by the slender Cotton Belt Warehouse (see it here, here and here), the area yearns for reinvestment.
Also, I realized I had photographed this warehouse in the past as well. It is a legacy of the area’s importance in the storage of produce and other foodstuffs.
This old power plant, shorn of its smokestack, is another interesting building sitting along the riverfront.
But the Ashley Street Power Plant
never ceases to amaze me; it is an ornate building, built in the Beaux-Arts style, and is a temple to electricity, and now steam.
