64 Vandeventer Place, 1899

From the Catalogue of the Annual Exhibition of the Saint Louis Architecture Club (1899). This two-and-a-half story Elizabethan-style mansion was designed by Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge in 1898 for Henry C. Scott, a Confederate war veteran and St. Louis capitalist. The H.C. Scott mansion stood at 64 Vandeventer until the 1950s city acquisition.

My father lived in this neighborhood in the 1930s and 40s. He is the last of eight siblings who grew up there and just turned 80 this weekend.

Do you have a copy of the street plan for that era? I though I saw it on the Google earth you posted but that is no longer available. He used to live in No. 41 and later in No 17 Vandeventer Place.

Any more photos you have of that era would be very much appreciated.
