Saint Louis in 1884: "the future great city of the world."

Early, the city was a supply depot on the west bank of the Mississippi River for emigrants heading across the plains. Native stone architecture in the city is described, as are the centers of retail trade, parks, schools, and public buildings. Reprinted from Harper's New Monthly Magazine.
