Queeny park

Back in the 1960s and 1970s St. Louis County must have commissioned a lot of bad mansard skating structures. Here is Queeny Park. There is also Kennedy recreation featured on this blog a few months ago

Union trio

It sounds like a jazz group but really three bad mansards in Franklin county.

Grants trail

7:30 am hockey practice at Affton so I took a morning walk on grants trail. Saw this mansard. Almost busted by homeowner taking a smoke break.

St. John Nepomuk

Sometimes I go to mass at St. John Nepomuk. This little mansard was part of the original church property and attached to the school. It's very cheerful.
