First Impressions

Seen around town, formal entrances to four subdivisions, one cattle baron mansion, and one university:

Entrance to the Jennings-May-St. Louis neighborhood on Lowden Street at Hemphill.

Entrance to Ryan Place on 6th Avenue at Jessamine Street.

Entrance to Park Hill on Winton Terrace West.

Standing like a “vast and trunkless leg of stone” from Shelley’s “Ozymandias” is this lone surviving column at the eastern entrance to the Mount Vernon subdivision on the East Side.

Thistle Hill.

I had never noticed TCU’s formal entrance as I drove through the campus on University Drive: always too busy trying not to commit freshmanicide at the student crosswalks.
