Overview

St. Louis is the largest city in Missouri and the “Gateway to the West,” a moniker symbolized since 1965 by the mighty Gateway Arch fronting the Mississippi River. With a selection of fine historic images from their best-selling book, Historic Photos of St. Louis, Jean Gosebrink and Adele Heagney provide a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of St. Louis. Remembering St. Louis spotlights photographs collected from the area’s top archives, including the Eads Bridge, the St. Louis World’s Fair of 1904, Busch stadiums, Union Station and the Milles Fountain, yesterday’s Olive Street, aftermath of the 1896 tornado, Grant’s Hardscrabble, the Admiral, the Southern Hotel, Forest Park, and much more. In stunning black-and-white photography, this book explores St. Louis from the early days of the camera up to recent times. Spanning two centuries and over 100 images, the book follows life, government, and the building of this history-rich city, offering a compelling look into the past for any longtime resident and every history buff of St. Louis.
