Caption: May 24, 1938----The St. Louis riverfront, looking south from the Eads Bridge on a dreary May 24, 1938. City voters already had passed a $7 million bond issue to clear the old commercial buildings for a sweeping memorial to Thomas Jefferson. (Almost three decades later, it would become the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and its signature Gateway Arch.) U.S. Interior Secretary Harold Ickes warned that the city would have to get rid of the old railroad trestle along Wharf Street before it could spend any federal money on the project. (Post-Dispatch)
