Where is the Pig Weather Vane?

Where in St. Louis is this quirky pig weather vane located? Perhaps the owner or builder had a "when pigs can fly" thought when building the house.

I know where it is, but do you? Post your answers in the comments section. (No prize.)

UPDATE: An anonymous reader correctly guessed the location -- it's the house at 3915 West Pine in the Central West End, just west of Vandeventer and just east of the building housing the new Cafe Ventana.

I think thats on West Pine about half a block west of Vandeventer. I'll have to check when I drive by that intersection on the way home from work.

Not quite a half a block west, but otherwise you are right, you Anonymous pal.

Unfortunately late to this one, but I used to live two buildings west on West Pine...now there's a nice coffee shop b/t the buildings....
I can't believe they painted that white. Horrible idea. But when Biondi buys a place.....

nostalgia.

"Uh, yeah, it's going to cost 70,000USD to repoint the entire building." "Really? Holy Il Duce! Hell, just paint it white."

Why are there no reports on the 4th Baptist church?
