Another Look at Gravois Park #3

Gravois Park shows different eras of buildings, from the late 19th Century to the early 20th Century. Below, these three houses demonstrate how the passage of time causes each house to slowly individualize even though they were built at once.Other buildings are clearly the same design structurally, but were individualized while being built.
The result is a sense of architectural unity while at the same time each building has its individuality.While red brick predominates on the front of buildings, tan and other colored brick begins to sneak onto the streets.
