18th and Pine, 1910

From Billboard Advertising in St. Louis by the Civic League of St. Louis (1910). A "double-decker" billboard is shown here at the corner of 18th and Pine streets; the caption for the photograph suggests it spans an entire city block. Below is the view today (still an empty lot); it is debatable whether a parking lot is preferable to a double-decker billboard.
