Editorial Reviews

Booknews
McNulty, who was born and raised in St. Louis, chronicles the history of this city and its changes since the dawn of the camera age. She pairs photographs over a century old with specially commissioned views of the same scene as it exists today to show the evolution of St. Louis from the pioneers' gateway to the west to a thriving city of the 21st century. Her text and b&w and color photographs show how its location on the Mississippi (once jammed with the fabulous steamboats that brought Mark Twain to the city) and its heritage as a heartland of ragtime, jazz, and blues music provide a distinctive flavor that blends the old with the new. Oversize: 11.25x10<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Helps me feel close to home

    I love this book. It has earned a permanent spot on my coffee table. As an Army wife, life is taking me far from my beautiful home town, and the photos in this book make me feel like I'm a little bit closer. Plus, I try not to miss an opportunity to teach others that I meet at each new duty station that there is more to St. Louis than beer and baseball. That's why it has such a prominent spot in our home.
