Holy Family

I attended Holy Family grade school (now Marian Middle School) in Tower Grove South. My favorite room was the third floor library which I had little access to, it was rarely open. I didn't know the room existed until I was in the sixth grade.


My infatuation with abstract expressionist painters Mark Rothko and Ad Reinhardt has roots here:





Rothko painting (he was a brick groupie too):

I love all the brick and mosaic work in the alley entrances.

Dear fellow St. Louis blogger:

I wanted to let you know about a book I just published. It is called Disappearing St. Louis and it presents 55 color images I captured over a three-year period. They depict the poor conditions of homes, churches, and commercial buildings across the city in historic neighborhoods such as Old North St. Louis, Vandeventer, Fountain Park, Academy, JeffVanderLou, and Hyde Park.

I created this book because I wanted to bring greater awareness to the issues faced by the city in the hopes of bringing greater support to help solve them. As part of that goal, I have decided to donate all profits from the sale of my book to the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group.

If you'd like to help spread the word, would you consider mentioning the book on your site? You can learn more about it here (http://seeingstlouis.googlepages.com/about2).

Sincerely,

Amy Fontinelle
