The "beautiful city" described by early 20th century picture postcard senders still exists. The vintage postcard images presented here take you on a tour of St. Louis' burgeoning days, where you will revisit the grand architecture and neighborhoods of the early part of the last century. See Union Station in its original incarnation as a train station. Witness the grandeur of the 1904 World's Fair held at forever beautiful Forest Park. Plus, savor the charm of the city's many other parks, such as Lafayette Park, the site where baseball was first introduced to St. Louis. You will visit the thoroughfares of downtown St. Louis before it became necessary to rebuild and renovate. Finally, visit favorite places like Soulard Market, which have thrived from the beginning, maintaining a connection between the past and the present.
