Saint Louis in 1884: "the future great
city of the world"
back to Central U.S. page
by William Henry Bishop.
Belching clouds of dark smoke coming from the city's factory chimneys were cited as
proof that St. Louis was indeed prosperous! 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.
Period engravings are added to the text. 24 pages.
