Photo Friday - Youth

Don't ask me what she thought she was reading upside down, but it seemed to grab her attention enough that the pacifier popped out and was headed to the floor.

Missouri Governor's Mansion

The current resident of the Mansion would be Missouri's newest Governor, Matt Blunt, and his wife Melanie. As the Governor and his wife are expecting their first child, there should be another resident of the Mansion before long.

Governor's State Office Building in the foreground of this shot.

Missouri State Capitol

Pic of Capitol from 1946. Just kidding it was taken earlier today, I just antiqued it a bit.

Cole County Courthouse

Around Town - Jefferson City

The Old International Shoe Company Building - it was based in St. Louis

Guard Tower

This was used as a Guard Tower after part of the wall at the Missouri State Penitentiary collapsed near one of the Gaurd Towers. I am guessing that it did not go up high enough as shortly after it arrived they set it up on the rails and concrete blocks that you see it setting on. It would be lowered at shift change and as they had a portable outhouse next to it when it was being used, I would say it was also lowered when nature called.

Woodland - Old City Cemetery

The Old Missouri State Penitentiary

View of the Prison from the Lewis and Clark State Office Building

The new Lewis and Clark State Office Building. One would hope that they have good water pressure.

The walls were crumbling down in places, but here they had help. A parking lot has been built inside the walls of the old prison. Access was restricted, so I could not get a closer look to see, but it looks as though they may have already gotten rid of the death chamber. (Update: I noticed the other day it is still there)

One can still see the bleachers used for softball/baseball games.

O'Donoghue's Steaks and Seafood

Missouri River Bridge

Missouri River bridge around 1988. Back when it was green. Down by the yeild sign you can see where they were just beginning to clear the area for the second bridge. You can see the old lights that use to control the traffic flow. One lane going out in the morning and two lanes going out in the evening.
