Caption: The hulk of the Jean Baptiste Roy house, 615-17 South Second Street, in October 1946, as efforts were rising to preserve it. The home had been built of limestone in 1829 by Roy, an explorer and fur trapper. In 1874, a butcher named John Boepple turned it into his meat shop. St. Louis tradition holds that the hot dog -- sausage in a bun -- was invented there. In 1947, it was the oldest dwelling in St. Louis. (Post-Dispatch)
