Description


Take a tour back in time to see St. Louis as it appeared 100 years ago. Vintage postcard imagery from 1900 through the 1950s provide rare views of Union Station; Eads Bridge, the first bridge across the mighty Mississippi River; and Forest Park, home of the 1904 World's Fair. You will be stunned by the hand-tinted images of Henry Shaw's spectacular garden displays, residential mansions that made St. Louis famous, and steamboats along the Mississippi. Approximate dating and values are included.
