Presenting a collection of St. Louis bricks, sidewalk markers, and the Fleur-de-lis as architectural detail on and in city buildings, brick collecting, urban exploration, and my life by Christian Herman. Reporting from Tower Grove South in St. Louis, MO.
Weekend drive through Clifton Heights on the way to meet Gus for dinner.
No time for text but please, marvel at the dimensional bricks on this building with the odd updated facade.
Are you an artist, one of these boys asked.
What makes you ask that?
The tattoos on your arms.
A lot of people have tattoos I said smiling.
Not like those, he solemnly said.
