Stickin' It to the Mansard
Toby's recent piece on the mansard-enshrouded little building in South St. Louis County inspired me to dig through my files for a photo I took a few years back near downtown Belleville, Illinois. I'm not sure exactly where this building stood or if it still looks like this, but it's undeniably a shining example of some hot mansard-on-mansard action.
When I'm not investigating all things esoteric and/or archaic, I host "Rocket 88"--a mix of old and new pop, rock and soul, both popular and obscure--from 6 to 8 a.m. Thursday on KDHX FM 88.1 in St. Louis. Out-of-towners can tune in on the net: www.kdhx.org!
