My husband was complaining that a mansard this lovely has no place in badmansard. I disagree with John (frequently, I might add, but about lots of other things like laundry, politics and technology). He was actually mad I made him stop the car so I could take a picture. John almost left me there, but that would have been ok because we live about 100 yards from this house.
A perfect mansard like this gives us proper perspective. This is on 12th Street in Soulard near the Anheuser-Busch tour center. I believe this is a beer baron house.
