Skinker-DeBaliviere #25, 6000 Block of Pershing Avenue

More apartment buildings with generous porches for each unit continue the trend of the western end of Pershing Avenue, but there is more in-fill on lots probably left over from the covering of the River des Peres.

A rare Georgian, or Colonial Revival apartment building, complete with rounded front porches, stood out to me. And then finally, the blacktop of a parking lots and the intersection of Des Peres Avenue and Forest Park Parkway appears.

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