Wells-Goodfellow #25, 5600 Block of Labadie

Over east of Goodfellow, the housing stock has more variety, with a strange mix of Cape Cods and early Twentieth Century apartment buildings.

There are few people left, but the plywood is new on many of the buildings; the abandonment is happening now, just as it was yesterday.

Some of the yards must really be bushy during the summer, judging by the overgrown lots in winter.

A hundred or more people used to live on this block alone, and now it is down to a handful.
