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.
Mediterranean Revival, Lawn Ave
We headed back to Lawn Ave today to gaze at this Mediterranean Revival duplex. Lush details: matching chimneys, barrel tile roof exciting brickwork, glazed bricks, that amazing column, and the downspout embedded in the brick.
That's a pond between the steps and that egg and dart terra cotta piece looks newer.
Stained glass window above glazed white bricks, twisted column with a robust Corinthian capital, and in the background a ceramic kitten lifting a paw.
That's the original exposed aggregate concrete sidewalk with matching mosaic sidewalks to the street.
