While the clothes may zero down the year a bit, the key clue to this Flashback Friday photo lies in the MetroLink train headsign — “Airport Main”. MetroLink began service to Lambert-St. Louis International Airport on June 1994. Before that, the furthest west MetroLink went was to the North Hanley MetroLink Station. To celebrate that nation’s birthday, this photo shows passengers exiting a MetroLink train at the Laclede’s Landing MetroLink Station on their way to Fair Saint Louis.
