Okay, back to the local stuff. This is what we were greeted with when we returned home last weekend. That building up in back is a pavilion preserved from the 1904 World's Fair, when STL was considered a suitable venue for such an event. It's been used for all sorts of public occasions - weddings, political rallies, concerts and more. Speaking of which, one time when I was an undergraduate at St. Louis University the Grateful Dead were in town for a big theater performance. The following afternoon they just showed up here and started playing. The SLU dorms emptied out and headed for the park. Wow, man.
A NOTE TO ANONYMOUS: after giving this much thought, I have decided to ask you to stop posting Biblical quotes in comments to all my posts. My blog it not a place for others to express their ideas on matters unrelated to it. If a socialist or a member of the Tea Party commented with daily excerpts from from the words of Karl Marx or Ronald Reagan, no one would be surprised if I objected. It's okay to post comments about the photo, the subject of the photo, the text, what's happening in your area relating to the post, or me (whether positive or negative). It's not okay for others to press their own causes on my blog. Whether I agree or not with such comments is irrelevant. So, please.
We're looking at urban geometry today on Downtown St. Louis 365.
