The Lost St. Louis Riverfront 1930-1943 is the first study to document fully the history of the area that is now the Gateway Arch National Park on the St. Louis Riverfront through historic photographs from the Park Archives. Additional information on the businesses and individuals who occupied these buildings brings to life the momentous impact this project had on the city and its riverfront.
