Fox Park Sidewalk MarkersJune 26, 2012
The Fox Park Neighborhood has a wonderful variety of sidewalk markers.
My personal favorite is The Weir Co’s clover-shaped marker. The bold lettering and design do a good job of catching the eye. This marker really demonstrates the pride its layer takes in his work. Less than a block away is the American Granit Flagging Company.
Unfortunately I was unable to locate any information online about either American Granit Flagging or The Weir Co.
Unlike the two companies above, Gilsonite Roofing and Paving turns up a lot of results on Google. From the Report of the U.S. Inspector for Indian Territory:
After finding and photographing so many rectangular, circular, and oval shaped sidewalk markers, it’s really nice to come across some different shapes. Here’s another marker I found just outside of Fox Park in Compton Heights:
In the St. Louis Place neighborhood I came across a very similar sidewalk marker with a slightly different name and an entierly different address:
St. Louis has so many miles of historic sidewalks that I doubt I’ll every be able to walk down them all, but I’m going to keep on trying.
