If you’ve ever taken a photo of St. Louis that perfectly captured the beauty of the city you love and wished you could share it beyond your own social media accounts, Missouri History Museum is giving you the opportunity. The public is invited to submit panoramas of the City of St. Louis to be featured in an upcoming Missouri History Museum exhibition, “Panoramas of the City.”
The new 6,000-square-foot exhibition helps visitors experience the city as it was between 1900 to 1950 using historic panoramic photographs as its backdrop. By reproducing some panoramic images of St. Louis on a large scale, the exhibition recreates Charles Lindbergh’s 1927 Welcome Home Celebration on Art Hill, the League of Women Voters’ march down Olive Street in 1920 and other important moments in St. Louis history.
Those who would like to share their own reflections on St. Louis are invited to share their panoramas of St. Louis skylines, crowds, neighborhoods and sporting events. Photos may be shared by tagging the Missouri History Museum on Twitter and Facebook, @mohistorymuseum, by using the hashtag #MySTLPanorama or by e-mailing photos to [email protected]. Photos are being accepted now and throughout the duration of the exhibition.
“Panoramas of the City” opens Sept. 2. Admission to the Missouri History Museum and the exhibition are both free. From the calendar
