This old building downtown used to be a warehouse with access to a railroad yard just in front of it. Now it's partly a hotel and partly fancy condos. The trompe l'oeil paint job might be thirty years old and is showing its age. The equestrian statue in the center is identical to the Apotheosis of St. Louis statue in Forest Park. Note the painted eagle flying across the far left side of the building.

Note also our bizarre Civil Courts building just to the right, with its Ionian columns, pyramid and sphinxes on top.

Nice work.

It could use a touch up, but it's well done.
