The book "Historic Buildings in St. Louis County" was published in 1983. This publication is an update of a 1970 report titled " 100 Historic Buildings in St. Louis County". Most have a picture of the building and at least an excerpt, if not a paragraph. There are a few though that only have a picture and the address, but may give the original owners names.
