Since this picture was taken, the roof has totally collapsed in this area.
A damaged roof channeled rain onto the adobe walls, cutting them in half. In the distance, a preserved house and the ruins of the Colmor School.
There’s a chair in there… on the auditorium balcony.
Clothing and a guest bed left behind.
Between the ice chute and the back of the north section of the cellars, a little pillar shows where a room used to be. The ceiling’s disintegration has since filled the space, which seems to be the last point of expansion in the cave–this was last carved in the mid-1840s.
The balcony used to be beautiful, you say. I say, it still is.
A closeup of the finely-carved seats in the house, presumably original to the Sattler. There are not too many of these in this kind of condition. If you have a better name for this figure than Cordelia, leave a comment.
Strange graffiti in a side room. Someone was having fun…
A gateway for St. Louis as seen through a gateway (of sorts) in East St. Louis.
