1900s St. Louis: Spectacular Historical Photos Show St. Louis, Missouri, at the turn of the 20th Century

The population of St. Louis at the beginning of the 20th Century was over 500,000, and it was the fourth-largest city in the U.S. The city was booming with rapid infrastructure and transportation development projects.

A significant moment in the city’s history occurred in 1904 when it hosted the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in Forest Park and the western edge of the city. In conjunction with the fair, the 1904 Olympic games were also held at Washington University’s Francis Field. Over 20 million people visited the fair during its seven-month run, immortalized in the song “Meet Me in St. Louis, Louie.” St. Louis continued to industrialize throughout the early 20th Century.

Below are some historical photographs showing towns, landmarks, markets, streets, shops and everyday life of People of St. Louis in the 1900s. Vote your favorites, and don’t forget to share.
