View from Eads Bridge, 1917

From Problems of St. Louis by the Civic League of St. Louis (1917). This is the view from the base of the Eads Bridge looking left on to 3rd Street and straight and to the right along Washington Avenue. The Civic League was actively promoting a more beautiful and inviting entrance to the city via the bridge; compare with the view today. Nothing in the above photograph exists any longer. Below is the current view:
