The Patch Revisited, Carondelet

Update: I revisited the area in July of 2018 and May of 2022.

I’ve long been worried about the cluster of historic stone and other brick and wood frame houses that form the core of a neighborhood that goes back to at least the Civil War, or even before, when James Eads built ironclads on what became the now-vanished Carondelet Coke plant.

Known as The Patch, it is really the southeasternmost portion of Carondelet.
