Old Cathedral, 1934

From the Historic American Buildings Survey, this photograph was taken by renowned St. Louis architectural photographer Alexander Piaget on April 9, 1934. Within a few short years, everything surrounding the Cathedral, including the street itself, was torn up and destroyed.

This is depressing. The Old Cathedral actually made sense as it once stood. Now it's just an orphan stranded pressed against the wall by the highway. So sad.
