The Beauty of Dutchtown, 82: Northeast Corner of Gustine and Dunnica Avenues

Across Gustine, this building from 1931 seems to blend elements of the Tudor Revival with Art-Deco, which is logical from its later date of construction.

Rectilinear panels with geometric patterns sits side by side with heraldic shields.

And the design shows a sensitivity to both Gustine Avenue, a major boulevard street to the west, and Amberg Park across the street to the south.

I also would like to invite readers out to my free lecture on the history of the Lemp Brewery at 11:00 AM, September 20, 2022 at the Missouri History Museum. Its architecture was born out of the designs of highly influential architects Edmund Jungenfeld; Theodore Krausch; Widman, Walsh and Boisselier; and Guy Tyler Norton. I will be discussing how these architects shaped the development of brewing architecture in buildings that still stand in South St. Louis over one hundred years or more since their conception. I will also be sharing exclusive historic photographs published in trade journals in the early Twentieth Century, many of which have not been seen for generations, as well as featuring the photography of Jason Gray, who photographed the brewery in 2017. More details can be found here.
