Lemp Brewery, 1878

From A Tour of St. Louis by J.A. Dacus and James Buel (1878). Dacus and Buel devoted a full-page print to the William J. Lemp Brewery complex, and what a marvelous complex it was. Located at Second Avenue and Cherokee, it covered multiple blocks and extended to the levee. Although substantial portions of the Lemp Brewery remain, they are occupied by mere pigeons now.
