What did slang sound like in 1875? What were St. Louis’s neighborhoods like in 1875? What did St. Louisans do for fun? Get answers to all these questions and more with a unique perspective of St. Louis in a single year of its history. Using Compton & Dry’s Pictorial St. Louis, one of the most important maps in American history, we’ll explore the sensations and experiences of being in the city’s streets, homes, and factories 140 years ago. From its busy center to its rural outskirts, past sparkling mansions and congested tenements.
Prior to the program enjoy a lunch of chicken pot pie, salad and dessert. There will be gluten free and vegetarian options available upon request. The cost to attend is $10 per person. To RSVP, send a check payable to “United Hebrew” by Tuesday, February 20 to United Hebrew, Attn: Senior Programs, 13788 Conway Road, St. Louis, MO 63141.
