The eclectic architecture continues up Shawmut Place, with an interesting mix of classical, Gothic, Tudor and little bits of all sorts of different styles.

The blocks are long north-south here, which I presume allowed for a shorter walk up to street car lines along then Easton, now MLK Dr.

I love this fire station; sort of like a movie theater in decoration. This is one time I will say, “they don’t make them like they used to.”

    Blown away by these. Particularly the two nearly identical houses, with the corinthian caps on the square brick columns, and the arched lintels. Nice juxtaposition.

    Excellent piece in StL Mag too, Chris. I’d encourage your readers here to take a look at it.
