Somewhere in southern Missouri

The top picture is poplar bluff. I've always enjoyed this building even though it does not have a mansard roof. The middle picture is also in Poplar Bluff. Last picture somewhere on the Arkansas Missouri border

Work conference mansard

Tan-tar-a in all its badmansard glory

In plain sight and yet so far away! This house is visible from Highway 270 northbound but I've never got off the highway and actually taken a good picture. At long last, while taking the girls to lacrosse practice at DeSmet high school, I was able to stop and take a proper picture. And, bonus, homeowners were having a garage sale!

Hot mansards in Hot Springs, Arkansas

Things are heating up in downtown St Louis

I have worked downtown for more than 20 years and I think this may be the first time I've seen this kind of hot barrel on top of a manhole. Interesting.
