Inhaltsangabe: Small in size but big in history, St. Louis' story is one of a gathering place and a crossroads. Here, where rivers meet, families departed for the West, brother turned against brother in the Civil War, and businesses supplied a nation with goods. The city's evolution from a small village of wooden cabins to a proud city of brick and glass reflects both national changes and local challenges. From the fur-trading frontier of Auguste Chouteau to the space pioneers of McDonnell Douglas, St. Louis is enriched by the river and powered by adventurous people.
Über den Autor: Born in St. Louis and educated at Washington University, Kirsten N. Hammerstrom was formerly on the curatorial staff of the Missouri Historical Society. As the photo editor for Gateway Heritage, she wrote a quarterly column on local architectural and preservation topics for several years and presented several conference papers on St. Louis architectural and urban history. She currently lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where she is curator with the Rhode Island Historical Society
