by John Milton Cutter.
This 1917 guide told tourists, pleasure seekers, and medical patients about this early national park and city and how to use and enjoy both. It had been telling them that, in fact, since 1873, and was now in its 61st edition! Fees, services, and even the local climate were all explained as part of the amenities of "America's greatest health and pleasure resort". This booklet shows glimpses of buildings and scenes that are gone. It suggests social and recreational pursuits that were available then. The total picture reveals the grand and also the ordinary, a cross-section of the park and the city that grew together. Photographs, 53 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

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. See sample pages, illustrations.
