View of Broadway and Olive, 1904

From The World's Fair, St. Louis, U.S.A., 1904 (1904). This splendid booklet from Robert Allan Reid is a wonderful compendium of images of the fair and of St. Louis from more than a century ago. Reid chose Broadway (looking toward the intersection with Olive) for inclusion among the images as a typical scene on St. Louis downtown streets. None of the buildings, streetcar lines, or telephone wires are extant.
