Right across the street from Joseph Rink’s old mansion, an early 20th century stuccoed apartment building stands on the northwest corner. The Saint James advertised a flat for rent in 1919 at $80/ month and included gas, electric lights, heat and water!

    THANK YOU FOR THE PHOTO, I AM LOOKING FOR THE APARTMENT BUILDING ON MERIDIAN STREET, ACROSS FROM A BRIDGE OVER A RIVER. THIS WAS IN THE 1930’S AND I WAS A CHILD .. I AM 91 NOW. MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER AND MY UNCLE ROBERT F KELLER LIVED IN THAT BUILDING … SEEMS IT WAS ED BRICK? ON 2ND FLOOR? I THINK ROBERT WAS THE PRESIDENT OF INDIANA NATIONAL BANK? HIS BROTHER, JOHN KELLER … WAS THERE AN AMERICAN NATIONAL BANK? I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO SEE PHOTO OF MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER’S HOME ON MERIDIAN STREET BUT I DO NOT KNOW ADDRESS OR IF IT STILL EXISTS …HOPE YOU CAN EMAIL A PHOTO. I LIVE IN OCALA FLA BUT GREW UP IN ST LOUIS. MY GRANDMOTHER WAS JOHN AND ROBERT’S SISTER.
