Caption: Edward M. Cavanaugh, building superintendent of the Automobile Club of Missouri, is booked at the downtown St. Louis police station on July 20, 1946, for refusing to pay the 10-cent bridge toll. Cavanaugh's planned action created a test case to challenge the city's right to charge a toll on the "free bridge." The Auto Club cited the original city bond ordinance declaring the bridge "forever free." But the Missouri Supreme Court ruled on Dec. 8, 1947, that the city was not permanently bound by that declaration, and had the right to charge tolls. (Post-Dispatch)
