Starting at the corner of West Florissant Avenue and Union Boulevard, we discover the southwest corner once held a beautiful Italianate mansion, now long gone. I am curious about the inordinate number of children spilling out of the front porch.
I’ve looked at Union Boulevard between West Florissant and I-70 before, back in July of 2019, and it’s an interesting stretch of street.
There have been many demolitions of the old workers’ houses that I photographed in the past, but there are still many houses left that I remember from before. There is also this interesting corner store, which you can see below.
Many houses are in good shape, but they sit next to others that are burned out.
