Union Boulevard Between Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and Wabada, West Side

Passing by MLK Dr., we see increasing abandonment to the west in Wells-Goodfellow. The houses are also more modest.

Judging from the brick patterns on above the doorway and the two upper windows of this four-family, I suspect this buildings front façade was once far more ornamented.

Storefront churches often fill the old corner spaces.

I wonder if the building on the right was once a fire station.

After Cote Brilliante Avenue is a funeral home.

At the corner with Wabada, we see a familiar airbrush mural.

There are two other beautiful buildings, one occupied above, the one below looking abandoned.

  1. You are correct in that the building in the fifth photo down was a fire house. Per Mark Groth ‘s “St. Louis City Talk” it was engine house #36.
