I like the singular identity that the architecture in Saint Louis exudes. There's quite a bit of variation, but it all definitely belongs to one city... it looks to be quite the city. Nice pictures.

Oh man, clearing out all those leaves look like they'll be a pain in the ass for anyone! I'm loving the brick though.

So St. Louis, I can smell it! These photos + black coffee makes this a great Monday to wake up to.

Thanks. It was nice to have a slice of crusty old St. Louis with breakfast.

When people say historical cities you always hear about Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, Boston, New Orleans, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Baltimore etc. I've always found it to be an utter travesty that St. Louis is not mentioned more often in the historical narrative of American cities. This thread proves why!

I think the history lessons need to start at home. Schoolchildren in St. Louis should be required to complete a series of classes called St. Louis Studies. In fact, all school children in the old original 314 area code, if not all of Missouri, should take St. Louis Studies.

Totally agree!

Fantastic! I could look at stuff like this all day long. I like the way St Louis looks like St Louis and nothing else.

Don't forget the old eastern riverfront cities in the Metro East some of them are more connected with the city than most of St. Louis County and Missouri are, but the entire STL metro should definetly be required and maybe some of the suburban kids might finally realize what kind of city they live next to and re-populate St. Louis City.

Agreed, Metro East should be included. As well as any Illinois & Missouri town within the sphere of influence. A lot of the small towns don't understand how their economies & cultures are related to St. Louis. It goes both ways, by the way. A region that loves it's city and a city that loves it's region is likely to be stronger, healthier & more appealing. Sorry to hijack thread! I will stop! We got on one of my subjects!

I'm pretty sure I've seen this building, but am not sure I can place it. Lynch Street?

Anyway, I love it. I wish someone would fix it up.
