Story of a City Dweller

I love everything about this scene. The signage, the storefronts, the sewer grates, the door opening from the sidewalk…the density. The eyeballs in the glasses signage is cracking me up, I love it.

This site is now a parking garage. I wish St. Louisians treasured scenes like this as much as I do and understood what it takes to get us back here.

    I agree. Imagine how beautiful our city would be if we didn’t tear our history down.

    St Louis was such a grand city once. Thank you so much for this glimpse of lost urban heritage!
