Jackson Park Elementary School, University City

Designed by Hugo K. Graf and Wilber Tyson Trueblood, Jackson Park Elementary School opened in 1933. Famed architect William Ittner added on some additions in 1952, late in his career. The school is a wonderful example of late Romanesque Revival architecture, much like would be seen in Italy, such as I recently covered in Bologna.
