The little turreted flatiron building was a keynote for St. Louis explorers, the kind of building that makes a wandering architecture fan stop the car and pull out the camera, then brings them back to the spot again and again. Its neighbors across the street provided an elegant background for it.
The two neighbors suffered brick rustler attacks in 2007, losing parts of their back sides. The thin Italianate building was demolished in February 2008; its broader neighbor was already gone.
