St. Louis.

Reproduction panorama vignette of the city known as St. Louis, MO. In the late 1890's automobiles began to appear on the streets of town. The main artery running north-south through the business district of St. Louis was Broadway. During the 1880's and 1890's several tall structures were built along this corridor. The relocation in 1880 of Barr's store to Sixth and Olive, and the move to the corner of Broadway and Locust of Scruggs-Vandervoort and Barney in 1888 were big indicators of the changing times. They called them skyscrapers. With the elevator's popularity, structures of ten or more stories began to rise up. Steel frames were now used to construct such structures as the ten-story Wainwright Building at Seventh Street and Chestnut and the fifteen-story building at 705 Olive Street. The new Union Station opened in 1894.

The panorama image features lively scenes of riverboat, carriage and streetcar traffic.
