Saint Louis Avenue Despoliation #4

The contrast across Glasgow Avenue could not be more extreme; on one side is a perfectly fine mansion, and on the other side is devastation.This nice Italianate house has been sitting empty for years, and I'm afraid that it will be hit by brick thieves eventually as well.I'm not sure which one a problem, but one of these two buildings is starting to settle at an angle, leaving a sliver of light between the two houses.Next week, I will move off of St. Louis Ave to the neighborhood south of the street, where the devastation is even more pronounced.

  1. These photos you've been posting really break my heart. The architecture is just so beautiful. It is so sad that they can't be saved.
