Inscription.  Originally this land contained a bottling shed for Arsenal Brewery. In 1937, city architect Albert Osberg (who also designed Soulard Market) designed a series of Art Deco police stations for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. This structure was the 3rd District Station, and it included a shooting range (lower level) and a maintenance garage (center). The building interior still contains the original jail cells.
