Skinker-DeBaliviere #24, 6100 Block of Pershing Avenue

Down closer to Forest Park Parkway, there are more apartment buildings, but they still are elegant, and I noticed many Washington University students coming and going.

There are still single family houses, as well, and some in-fill, for that matter.

The streetscape below is a perfect example of how builders successfully create a sense of rhythm, the movement back and forth of the porches and the entrance alcoves create a pleasing and comfortable outdoor “room.”

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.
