Inscription.  This two-story structure is Federal style architecture, with a gabled roof, six over six windows, and a corbelled cornice. Small, mixed use commercial and residential structures were common in this densely-populated walking city. This building was probably held by the Russell-Allen family as rental property. In the 1850s, St. Louis was a major tobacco processing hub. The 14-member Wushke family emigrated from Austria and established their cigar-rolling operation on the first floor, living upstairs.
 
Erected 2019 by Soulard Historic District.
