Eureka! I found a cute little mansard house

My great aunt Helen died in 2020 and the family recently put together a get-together in her honor.  Saw this adorable mansard house on Eureka Road.  Love it.

Pretty Mansard - University of Arkansas


The bad mansard children are growing up so quickly.  Here is my daughter Audrey by an iconic mansard - Old Main at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.

Ballwin, MO

 Saw this bad mansard in a subdivision dropping my daughter off at a friend's house for a ride back to college.  Just 24 hours earlier, she had cut her hand with a knife at Soulard Mardi Gras. We had to find some doctor friends who could take a look at the wound early Sunday before she left town.  Don't worry - daughter is fine.

Whitehorse Lane

 Yes, it's an awkward mansard but it's kind of cute.  Reminds me of a tuxedo cate.  Thanks neighbor Kent for finding this one.

New jobs bring new architecture

 Not mansard related, but my husband has a new job in the beautiful Station G building on Chouteau.  It's an old Laclede Gas pump station.   John has worked in some architecturally amazing places over the last 25+ years:  1136 Washington Ave (A.D. Brown Building), 1221 Locust Street (Shell Building), 1101 Lucas Avenue (Hadley-Dean Building) and 415 N. 10th Street. 

As for me, I've only ever worked in two old, cool buildings.  For a hot minute, my law firm had temporary space in Union Trust Building.  My office was huge with a lumpy couch and a pretty chandelier.  It's now the site of the Saint Louis old office is now a hotel room, LOL.  Then, when I was in law school, I worked in the Frisco Building at 9th and Olive.  Other than that, my firm has been in very boring space:  200 N. Broadway, 211 N. Broadway and 515 Olive.

Enjoy the pics.
