Stockyards 1895

Post by Mizzou05 »

Sorry if this is a duplicate post from the past. Was digging around the Library of Congress' website, and found an interesting map of the West Bottoms from 1895. You can find it at https://www.loc.gov/resource/g4164k.pm0 ... 66,0.678,0

The zoom in quality is quite good.
Enjoy!

It was the inspiration for the Disney stations.

Yeah - that map is a blast. I think it's somewhere in the "Why Can't the West Bottoms be Redeveloped" thread, but who the hell knows where.

Thanks for posting it in its own thread.
