Penrose in the Snow #2, Gingerbread Houses

The Penrose neighborhood has whole streets lined with Gingerbread style houses, even though most people associate these houses with the St. Louis Hills area of South City.

And they’re all well maintained, and the heart of the middle class community of North St. Louis.

It’s pictures of houses such as these that I enjoy showing to people, as it disproves that all of North City is somehow a lost cause. It will be if our politicians have their way.
