Last week, I shared some pictures of the St. Louis Public Library Buder Branch. This week, I’m taking a look at the former home of that branch of the library, a mid-century modern building that now houses The Record Exchange.
This building, like the current Buder Branch, is located on Hampton Avenue. It was built in 1961, and it shows. I love the corner details on the roof:
There are tons of details on this building, including aluminum brackets and even funky lamps in the (very small) parking lot:
The details on the railings out front are amazing, but this one, which has square elements on a curved piece of railing, is my favorite:
This is another great little St. Louis treasure that I hope will be with us for a long time!
