Central West End Historic Preservation Mid-Century Modern

Scenes from the San Louis Love-In

by Michael R. Allen

Jeremy Clagett captured the following videos at Saturday’s San Luis Love-In that honored the Central West End mid-century motel now known as the San Luis Apartments, threated with demolition for a parking lot by the St. Louis Archdiocese.

In the first video, Jeff Vines offers a rousing poem and I read two “proclamations” in support of the Love-In.

In the second video, Randy Vines talks to reporter Joe Crawford from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
