I gave my friend in from China a tour around the city and parts of Illinois, and these are some of the shots he took.
Above, Armour Meat Packing Plant, and below a corner store in North City.
Update: The plant was demolished in the spring and summer of 2016.
Below, I think this house is in Old North St. Louis.
Taking a shot of some houses while we were driving creates an interesting visual effect in the foreground.
The lines of the McKinley Bridge never cease to amaze me as well.
And finally, the view of downtown from the old National Stockyards. The day we were there the prostitutes out along Route 3 were wearing Santa Claus hats.
