Flashback Friday

Return to Blog

Flashback Friday time!

The answers are in!

Today’s photo is a view of Laclede’s Landing on the right,  and to the left, the spot where Washington Ave. becomes the Eads Bridge (where the bus is heading westbound.) The photo was taken from the cleared out Jefferson National Expansion zone, which was being used as a parking lot at the levee at the time (late-1950s.)

Have a great weekend!

    The levee on the Mississippi River near Eads bridge after they had cleared it for construction of the Gateway Arch – early 1950’s

    This is the riverfront parking lot in the 1950s after the site was cleared, but before Arch construction started. That white car in the front is a 1957 FORD. There was also a transit bus parking lot on the future arch grounds, as buses brought workers to downtown and parked there during the day waiting for the evening rush home. There is a photo of the bus parking also, somewhere.
