Kirkwood Mansard with Greek columns (of course)
Check out this big, stupid, ugly mansard in Kirkwood on Kirkwood Road (aka Lindbergh Road). Of course it's stupid and ugly- it's in Kirkwood! Webster High School class of 1989 rocks! (this is in jest- I sadly lacked all forms of school spirit or municipal pride). So anyway, this is a big ugly bank in the middle of a parking lot with a dumb, oversized mansard. Love the faux Greek columns. Oh, didn't you know that Greek columns, mansard rooflines and barberry bushes were all the rage in Second Empire France?
