Flashback FridayReturn to Blog
This structure is what would become the St. Louis Globe-Democrat Building (now the Post-Dispatch Building) as seen in February 1931. The photo is looking north upon 12th Street (now Tucker) and Franklin (now MLK.)
A fascinating history of this and the other buildings just south, all connected by the old Illinois Terminal railroad tracks, can be found here.
Have a great weekend and come visit the Metro booth at Earth Day!

The Midwest Terminal Building (aka: Globe-Democrat Bldg/Post-Dispatch Bldg) 12th (Tucker) & Franklin (or Delmar).
No, the Midwest Terminal Building…the Illinois Terminal Downtown Passenger
Station/Freight Terminal…would have been several blocks further down North Tucker(12th) at 710 North Tucker. This building at 900 North Tucker, was built for the Globe-Democrat, then sold to the Post-Dispatch when the Globe bought the Midwest Terminal building and moved to it in 1959. It became known as the (New) Post-Dispatch Building and the MTB then became known as the (New) Globe-Democrat or Globe Building.
