Families will have the opportunity to explore the history of St. Louis from 1900 to 1950 through some of the largest and most amazing photographs ever taken of the city, which will provide a unique view of what St. Louis was like in the first half of the 20th century. Stories of struggle and celebration, of devastation and triumph, small, overlooked details that live in the edges of the frame—details that not even the photographers knew they had captured.
In order to make those details come to life, the Missouri History Museum has enlarged these photographs to a larger-than-life scale, and highlighted a handful of stories from each panorama to give a sense of what was happening in the moment.
