Shaw Place

Shaw Place Fountain 

When Anne was still working downtown at the Corps and the kids were in preschool at Martha Rounds, she would take I-44 to work.  As she neared downtown she would look to her right to glimpse the brilliant white sculpture pictured above.  After brunch today we went in search of it.  It took a bit of doing since it was only accessible from a one way street that kept changing the direction of its one way.  The sculpture is the centerpiece of Shaw Place, a one block court.  Elaine Viets a former Post-Dispatch columnist and now mystery author wrote the The Pink Flamingo Murders.  This mystery is set in a fictionalized version of Shaw Place.
