Link Between Downtown STL And Hades

.
House of Hades Tile, 7th and Olive, STL

We saw a few House of Hades tiles in Philadelphia and several in New York. These appear to be the contemporary successor to Toynbee Tiles. Well, the sharp eyes and research skills of Mrs. C. found a reference to one in downtown St. Louis. It's at 7th and Olive Streets in front of Macy's, a block from my office. I walk through that intersection frequently and I am embarrassed that I have not noticed it. It is a bit out of the crosswalk, though.

There may be more. Now I want to walk through every downtown intersection and search. They could be in any other part of the city. The mystery continues.

Extremely interesting post, not that I would think you'd ever have a boring post, Bob. I look forward to seeing the results of your searches.

It might be more of a house of Hades in the summertime.
