Bear Market

I apologize for the dreadful pun in the title of this post. Two big stone bears guard the entrance to the old Kiel Opera House on Market Street downtown. This link shows several different views and gives a bit of history. It was a venue for Broadway shows, touring musical acts, the St. Louis Symphony before they moved to their current home in the 60s and even the odd opera. It has been empty for a number of years. There's talk about redevelopment but nothing has gone forward.

I like bears and if they are left alone they are nice animals in their environment. I like your photo.

I have some good news:

The three baby robins are on their way to Meet the World. I miss them already. It was quite an emotional experience.
