Skinker-DeBaliviere #23, 304-310 N. Skinker Boulevard

Constructed in 1909, this interesting apartment building is owned by Bobb LLC, also known as Washington University.

It is a curious building, with two different brick colors, which do not make sense from a compositional standpoint; the curved bay windows along the alley look newer, or perhaps were they heavily repaired for some reason? I do not know.

Nonetheless, it shows what terracotta accents can do with talented bricklaying.

I am giving a free lecture onHans IV Pfleger’s Candlesticks and House Altar atthe Saint Louis Art Museum this Thursday, June 14th at 11:00 AM, and again on Friday, June 15th at 6:00 PM.
