Available for rent: the sock store on Jefferson or, as we call it in our house, the stolen goods store

122 miles

It's only 3:06 and I've already put 122 miles on my car driving kids around. Affton ice rink, St Dominic High School, Ballwin, St James the Greater, Lions choice and Marshalls. Here's a mansard I found on Clayton avenue.

Pausing for a flounder

While technically not a mansard this flounder sure is cute. Can you name the street?

New year, new use in the Grove

I have always liked this odd shaped mansard in the Grove at the corner of Tower Grove and Manchester.  I can't quite figure out why it doesn't look perfectly rectangular. Is it the shape of the storefront corner or is the actual building not a rectangle?

 Very interesting. According to the post dispatch the developer plans a Reliance bank with two drive-through lanes and upper floors as offices or residences
