Downtown St Louis

By the Route 66 era, the center of St Louis had moved west from the decaying riverfront. The square building at the left is the Famous-Barr Department Store. Route 66 runs across the middle of the photo, behind the Civil Courts Building (with the pyramid shaped roof) and the Southwestern Bell Building. The Municipal Auditorium is visible to the left of the grassy area, Memorial Plaza.
