Flashback Friday: Working Out Downtown

Return to Blog

Flashback Friday time folks!

Put your thinking caps on. (Not too tight!)

Did you guess what year, and where this photo provided by the Missouri History Museum was taken?

The picture shows Washington Avenue at Fourth Street looking west, and was taken in 1947.

According to the Missouri History Museum, the Missouri Athletic Club (MAC) is the building on the right—which was the  northwest corner of Fourth and Washington Streets. The MAC is still located there and has been since 1903.

Remember to check out St. Louis Earth Day this weekend. Hope to see you there!

    The building is the Missouri Athletic Club, maybe around the late 1940’s. Looking up Wash Ave, I think (did streetcars run on Wash Ave?)
