The Hunt for 1875: Plate #15

I have seen the Compton and Dry pictorial St. Louis used for a variety of historical purposes, but I have yet to see a full comparison of the pictorial St. Louis in 1875 with what remains today. Each day a new plate will appear in the order of their appearance in the Compton and Dry map, followed by an edited version in which the remaining buildings (as far as I can tell) are highlighted in blue. All images are from the Library of Congress downloadable map.

Thank so much for all the time and effort that you have been putting into 'The Hunt for 1875'. I've been following from the beginning and while it so far has been a very sobering and depressing process, it has at the same time been very gratifying to look at what the city was/is plate-by-plate. Keep it up!
