Twins

What's happening in our built environment.
Or at least close siblings with different fates on MLK and Grand:

Wow. That really is a quite remarkable resemblance. Must have been the same architect or builder, or maybe even the same owner at one time?
The one on N. Grand is actually the slightly more attractive design, I think. Such a shame.

Probably builders would order facades from a terra cotta catalogue. There may be quite a few twins scattered around the country.
The decorative blocks, yes. Sure. But I'd have said the fenestration and proportions are too similar to be just that.
imran, can I post those photos on twitter? Alderman Moore said yesterday in Committee that Saint Louis actually is three cities... truer words have never been spoken about the city before.
