Lambert Field

"Named in honor of Major Albert Bond Lambert, who created and maintained the field for public benefit from 1920 to 1928. Area 546 acres. The six-point hard-surface runway system extending over 3,000 feet in each direction is level with the field and can be crossed. A Concrete mat or apron 2,500 feet long and 200 feet wide serves the hangars of the air mail and passenger lines, flying schools, passenger depots, weather bureau, restaurant and executive buildings. The radio range station is located on southeast corner of the field about 800 ft outside the white boundry lights." In this view, Route 66 passes under the Wabash Railroad bridge and the community of Anglum, then swings to the left of the picture. The road running between 66 and the terminal is Bridgeton Station Road.
