South Morganford

I normally don't get this far south in the city, but the broad avenues and neatly kept houses and apartments of the area always impress me when I do.
The buildings are a mixture of 1930's and 1940's architecture, and in particular, that mainstay of many St. Louis neighborhoods, the four family flat, comes to the height of its power of design in this area.
What's interesting is that most four families have pretty much the same floor plan, but with different fronts put on them, creating variety.
This gas station also shows that these businesses don't have to be ugly or generic, like so many are nowadays.
