Surprising St. Louis

Just back from a weekend in St. Louis -- a surprising mix of old and new, pre-turn of the century and cutting-edge modern. The grandiose houses which line gated boulevards are intriguing....not so much for their size, but for the wonderful architectural thinking that went into building something so large with character. Ah, if only the outside-of-the-beltway builders constructing today's McMansions could have learned but one lesson from these gents.
