Were you able to guess when this week’s Flashback Friday photo was taken?
This view is looking North on Third Street as a bus rolls along Washington Avenue approaching the Eads Bridge in 1957. Work was underway on the Third Street bridge that would connect the Mark Twain Expressway (I-70) with the 3rd Street and Ozark Expressways.
Alas, this same area is once again the site of construction as crews rework the roadways as part of the CityArchRiver 2015 project.
