A stretch of North Broadway above downtown. It's an old commercial area that now has lots of empty buildings. The paint store is long gone. However, the brick building in the second picture, vacant until recently, is now the factory of Bissinger's, St. Louis' chocolatier par excellence.
Up to Chicago this morning. There is a baby shower for granddaughter # 2 at the home of my son and his wife near Logan Square (officially due September 17). Then some actual business on Monday and Tuesday. The Canon is coming along, of course.
