Euclid Avenue Between Lindell, Maryland and McPherson Avenues

I’ve always found it interesting how there is a quiet section of private streets off Euclid Avenue in the Central West End in between Maryland Avenue (which you can see here and here) in the south, and McPherson Avenue in the north (which you can see here and here). Above is the southeast corner of…

Near North Riverfront, Early Fall 2022

It had been a little while since I had photographed the rapidly diminishing warehouses of the Near North Riverfront, specifically the ones just to the north of the casino, which has weirdly changed its name to the Horseshoe, which makes it sound like it should be out in the middle of nowhere in Texas or…

The Beauty of Dutchtown, 85: South Grand Boulevard and Delor Street

A little bit further south and a bit of an outlier, this building built in 1930 is an interesting mix of styles. Constructed in 1930, this complex has two distinct sides. There was the more conservative public and commercial side facing Grand, but then there is the more experimental side facing Delor. That less busy…

Downtown from the McKinley Bridge

The views of downtown from the McKinley Bridge are also impressive. The vacant Southwestern Bell building can be seen below, with the boarded up windows that were shot out by stray bullets earlier this year clearly visible. The Eagleton Federal Courthouse is to the west. Then there is the iconic Civil Courts building. The Stan…

Former Bremen Bank and Breakfast on Broadway

I’ve photographed the former Bremen Bank and its diner neighbor across from Mallinckrodt Chemical on North Broadway at least once before, back in the summer of 2019 (last photo), but I’ve never taken the time to look at them closely. I’ve heard the diner has amazing chili macs. It’s perhaps obvious why there is a…

A Vanished Mansion at the Corner of Lindell Boulevard and West Pine Drive

These two houses along Lindell Boulevard just west of Kingshighway, which I looked at way back in March of 2008, used to have two neighbors just down the street, back when this was actually known and platted originally as Park Road, as I mentioned yesterday. Designed by the famed architecture firm of Barnett, Haynes and…

Lindell Boulevard from North Boyle Avenue to Kingshighway

Proceeding further west on Lindell Boulevard, we see both well-preserved stretches of historic architecture and utterly obliterated streetscape. There are those stunning townhouses, which I would love to own if I didn’t have to worry about a car driven by a man-child flying into my living room every day. And then there’s the former of…

Lindell Boulevard from Grand Boulevard to Vandeventer Avenue

Ah, Lindell Boulevard! I avoid the street like the plague because it is such a dysfunctional street. Once a residential street lined with mansions, sometime in the Twentieth Century it became the busiest street in the city. The mansions were demolished, and it became lined with businesses, while the through traffic jumped over to Highway…
