Abstract: Thirty-four photographs which document life in the first half of twentieth century St. Louis, contributed by the public.

Scope and Content note: This collection of photographs was assembled in 2014 by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch for the publication of a book titled St. Louis Memories: A Look Back. The book included images from several institutions as well as the general public. Private individuals and organizations were invited to have their photographs scanned by the contributing institutions. M-367 represents those photographs contributed to the project by the public that were scanned at the St. Louis Mercantile Library. The physical photographs still belong to the individual owners, but the scanned images were contributed to the library.
