This view looking east at the Grand Avenue Water Tower dates to February 1957 and was taken by the City Plan Commission.

I can almost here the rumbling of those cars firing up.

Vrrrooooommm!!!! Vrrooom...vrroooom!!!!!

St. Louis must have been a rumbly place back in those days!

Say, what's all that dark wispy stuff up in the sky?

Exhaust fumes from people moving to North County?

What is that building on the left, the one that looks like a church? I've never seen pictures of it before, is it still there?

Yes it is still there. It's an old Catholic church. Now it's a different sect of the Christian church, but still a house of worship.

Lovely building.

That church has been on my list of places to visit on a Sunday morning for quite a long time.

The church in this picture was Holy Name Catholic Church.
