Parc de Janvier et Arsenal

St. Louis Parks Department facility at Sublette Park at January and Arsenal. Is this the Hill? What is it with the Italians and bad mansards?

Finale de Mansard Maintenant de Chicago

This is the last of Danny Consiglio's Rogers Park "Mansard NOW!" series. Did you know Dan (St. Louis native, WGHS 1988) authored a parenting book, The New Dad from A-Z? It will be out later this spring; click here.

Mansard Garage Deux

Here we are in Lafayette Square, St. Louis' premier collection of Second Empire Victorians. And this garage. Near Sqwires on 18th. One of Kay's friends lives near this garage and I honestly hadn't noticed it until read Matt pointed it out to me. D'oh!

Sidenote 1: can we PLEASE stop butchering the spelling of restaurants with random numbers and misplaced letters? Sqwires. Fi5teen. Backward "7".

Sidenote 2: I hate restaurants with names like churches and churches that sound like restaurants. A church should be named for a saint or religious event and/or its denomination and location (Third Baptist, Webster Methodist, etc).

Kirkwood Road (aka Lindbergh) apartment building. When I was a kid my grandmother lived in Kirkwood. She'd ask my mom to 'run up to Skaggs' and we'd pass this place on our way there.

St. Andrew

More signs. I am using some leftover 2009 pictures. Of note, I am also using up all the food in my pantry and deep freezer.

Happy new year! Here's my mansard with some snow on it.
