Thought this thread by shn was too cool to just let go.
Below is the house I grew up in. It is a 3 story redbrick with a slate-tile roof built in 1906.
The view is of the side door, which is what I used.
Next is a pulled back view.
The "y" shows a large bowl shaped area where we played football. It is a drained pond used in the St. Louis World Fair of 1904.
The circled house, just a block up, is that of Marlon Perkins. Older members may remember him as host of Mutual of Omahas' Wild Kingdom.
Too bad the photos were taken in the winter, but I guess in the summer, all you would see is green treetops.
