Tony Faust Restaurant, 1891

From Commercial and Architectural St. Louis by D.G. Jones (1891). Tony Faust Restaurant was among the finest restaurants in the city, located at the corner of Broadway and Elm Street (currently a vacant construction site and formerly the site of Busch Stadium). Faust was the first location in the city to have electric lighting (using arc lamp technology from the 1904 World's Fair) and was famed for its rooftop garden area.
