Moving north past Quincy Street, the majority of the historic built environment is on the west side of South Broadway. On the east side are a bunch of vacant lots and rusty warehouses.
Still, there are more elaborately decorated Italianate storefronts that are not common in St. Louis anymore, largely swept away by later development in the early to mid Twentieth Century.
This little storefront, particularly with that one slender Solomonic column painted golden yellow, is a real gem.
Finally, as we turn west onto Haven, we see what is easily the most heavily awning-covered building in St. Louis.
