Currier & Ives In The Midwest

Forest Park 2015-02-21 10

Looking west from the same golf course. The STL city limits are a short distance behind Skinker Boulevard, the street visible toward the bottom of the frame. Beyond is St. Louis County - suburbia - and the city of Clayton, Missouri. It's sort of a second, more sanitary downtown, newer, with the County's court system, awash with law firms, very expensive homes (by our standards) and pedestrian architecture.     

The scene reminded me a bit of Currier & Ives prints.

Very pretty. But, Skinker Boulevard? Really?
