Architectural Scrap

Archetecture Scrapyard

I has some trouble figuring out where to park and enter the grounds on my first visit to the STL Swap Meet. While I was wandering, I saw a small gated courtyard in the brewery that faced the street. It held the frames of two quatrefoil windows, probably from a demolished church, and some other architectural scrap. The frames looked to be solid enough to restore. Where they will end up I cannot guess.

Anyone who is interested in this sort of thing should check Chris Naffziger's excellent blog, St. Louis Patina, about the decay of our city's architectural heritage.

Sample the brewery? Swap meets can be pretty dusty.

Quite a chaotic mess, at least at the moment.

Sort of sad to see those wonderful frames there.
