The Beauty of Dutchtown, 74: 3801-07 Keokuk Street

Built in 1930 and clearly a cousin of the apartment complex at Alberta and Giles, this building with an address of 3801-7 Keokuk to the east of Amberg Park shows an interesting contrast to its relative.

It is perhaps more stiff and formal, rejecting the rusticated stone and emphasizing more rectilinear brickwork.

But its form is the same; to j-shaped wings connected by a stone or terracotta compressed Tudor archway.

What I particularly like is how it still knows it has a public side along Bamberger Avenue to the east and does not neglect the ornamentation over here.
