Guest Post from Kassie M., Grad student working in the Map Collection

This summer I have been working in maps with a large collection of uncatalogued wall maps. The majority of these maps have been stored within the map collection since the Geology branch was consolidated into the main library. This summer the large collection is being evaluated and sorted. There have been several interesting finds, including this 1918 map of St. Louis. One unique feature of this map is its gothic Forest Park label.

Map: Talbert, C.M. Map of the city of St. Louis as established by the city charter of 1876. [St. Louis, MO], 1918.

someone stole the siding

Richmond Heights MO - December 2013

This area of Richmond Heights, although I did love the weird other worldly desolation and end of days derelict housing, this area was bought out and the houses sat vacant until the developer leveled the area to build a Menards shopping plaza. Not that that’s any better, but this area is not abandoned in the traditional sense.

It’s still a cool photo… And urban landscaping which is what this blog is about. Yes the title is abandoned living, but if you read the description you’ll find it’s about way more than just that. About what we choose to throw away versus what we choose to hold onto as a society.

Oh, it’s a great photo.  And I’ve read the description and my statement still stands.  In this case, like many others, the revenue from yet another big box hardware store outclassed the tax revenue from seventy something homes.  It’s pretty fucking amazing that we value retail choice over building communities.  (sad trombone sound)

I get what you’re saying, which is why I think the photo fits this blog. We’re throwing away homes and communities and it says a lot about our society.

What we throw away versus what we hold onto.
