Using Historical Imagery As a Tool for Studying Early Patterns of Land Use and Building Traditions in St. Louis

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Central Library

Description

Andrew Weil, director of Landmarks Association, will discuss St. Louis’ oldest vernacular architecture and where it survives today. Early paintings, photographs and maps like Compton & Dry’s 1875 Pictorial St. Louis depict early property types and settlement patterns that in many cases have disappeared from the landscape of today. Such documents offer fascinating windows into the city’s earliest neighborhoods and buildings and provide ways to study the evolution of the city and its early architectural traditions.
