    In 1927, so much for the ground gradually sloping to the river as indicated in the story.

  • Thanks for commenting, John Campbell. I believe Amy Kimmel's recollection of the property was probably accurate. My guess is that the dramatic difference in her description and the photographs published with this blog can be explained by the reshaping of the riverfront at the hands of the railroad.

  • Thanks for resurrecting this old photo and story. I had read several blurbs about the Klosterman home while researching my great great uncle Louis Ische Jr. Louis had worked for Mr Klosterman for years and later bought the store from mrs K after her husband's death. I always wondered about the location of the home on Spanish street, and had never seen photos of it. Now I can dig into the Missourian archives for more of Ms Kimmel's articles.
