Seared Tomato and Brick - A Narrative Landscape

My grandfather owned this building on Morgan Ford.

Limestone Pavers - Going, going, gone

This is how the roads in TG Park looked before asphalt. They were made of limestone pavers.
I like to imagine how horse hooves sounded clopping over the stone.
Some gutters remain but most of them were covered.

Vitrolite A Go Go

Tim, The Vitrolite Man, was hired to remove the burgundy vitrolite from the former Hesselberg Pharmacy on Hartford and S Grand.

It's a sad day.

Feathers

I'm doing a documentary on a wee Golden and her interest in Greek Mythology.
You can expect a documentary by someone else since that's what happens to my ideas.
Thanks for your supportive emails over the years on the subject :)

Hot Time Summer in the City

Having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave. Morgan Ford and Juniata St in Tower Grove South. The bricks of Three Monkeys and a sunset over 7-11. Welcome to our corners.

Saying Goodbye to The Kingshighway Street Viaduct

Why is the parapet open on my left side to traffic? There was a bus stop on both sides at the top of the viaduct. Employees of the former Ravarino & Freschi Pasta (R & F Pasta on Kingshighway and Shaw - NE corner) used this bus stop.

View from one former bus stop looking across Kingshighway at the northbound stop.

At the bus stop looking south.
