St. Louis City and Industry Photos from Glass Slides

St. Louis City and Industry Photos from Glass Slides

I’m not sure what building was being built, or torn down, but here are some interesting construction and architecture photos. They were taken along the riverfront in St. Louis and I scanned them from glass slides, which I believe to be from the 1920s because of the old cars. One is obviously of the Old Rock House Saloon & Restaurant, and there are photos of two plaques: The Nichols-Howard Building – Landmark of the Great Fire of 1849, and The Old Rock House.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
