This group of city blocks, all photographed in December 2002, are fairly typical of those between MLK and Page Boulevards. The housing in these neighborhoods is frequently very handsome... where it survives. These blocks are common in having a wide mix of occupied houses, board-ups, and vacant lots.

Top: The 5800 block of Minerva.

Center: 1400 Temple.

Bottom: 5300 Wells. The small one-story house in the foreground is a common type for St. Louis -- one story, narrow, flat roof, and a grandiose yet diminitive front facade.
