The Hunt for 1875: Plate #24

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.

The church at lower left, St. Bonaventure, was demolished in the 1960s for Busch Stadium, and its location is roughly center field for the current stadium. Click here for more information.

This way my colleague Wesley Virgin's biography starts in this shocking and controversial VIDEO.

Wesley was in the army-and soon after leaving-he unveiled hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the CIA and others used to get everything they want.

These are the exact same tactics tons of celebrities (notably those who "became famous out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become rich and successful.

You've heard that you utilize only 10% of your brain.

That's really because most of your brain's power is UNCONSCIOUS.

Maybe that expression has even occurred IN YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head around seven years ago, while driving a non-registered, beat-up garbage bucket of a car with a suspended driver's license and with $3.20 on his banking card.

"I'm very frustrated with going through life check to check! When will I become successful?"

You've taken part in those types of thoughts, right?

Your very own success story is waiting to be written. All you have to do is in YOURSELF.
