We Are the Arch

People. Places. Experiences. Memories.

All are present in this journey through the nearly 50 year history of St. Louis and its biggest symbol.

The following are copies of original images published in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat from 1964 to 1985, generously provided to St. Louis Public Radio by the St. Louis Mercantile Library, and from the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial. For more construction images, see the Memorial’s Flickr collection.
