Founded by the French in 1764, St. Louis became the "Gateway to the West" after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.  As a steamboating center, it had water connections stretching thousands of miles from Pittsburgh to Montana to Minneapolis to New Orleans....

The historic Eads Bridge, built in 1874 to link St. Louis to Illinois and improve the flow of transportation, was the largest bridge ever built at the time and the first to incorporate steel arches in its design.  

This view of the city is from the east bank or Illinois side of the Mississippi and shows cargo being unloaded and passengers waiting to board a sidewheeler.  Also included are the old courthouse dome and the spire of the Cathedral of St. Louis, both of which can be visited today.
