The corner of Natural Bridge Ave. and North Market St in St. Louis. Natural Bridge Ave. at this point is now called North Florsant Ave.  Since the age of 7 by myself I would take the bus from Hebert St. to this corner and get off walking up hill to St. Liborius school. After school I would take the bus to down town St. Louis going to my dad's or mum's office. Going up the street on the left at the end of the buildings was a barber shop where the barber used to burn hair on Fridays in his ashpit and stink up the neighborhood.  The smell was bad enough that it made the school kids sick. The Catholic Woman's Day School is also right up the block on the right. I attended there from the age of three.  I remember getting cod liver oil on a wooden spoon every day.
