9781467124591: St. Louis: Bridges, Highways, and Roads (Images of America)

Every street has a story. From the humblest cul-de-sac to the roaring interstates, the roads tell the stories and reveal the character that make each neighborhood unique. St. Louis was born of the great rivers, so its bridges played a crucial role. Together, the names of the roads tell the history of the child of the rivers that became the Gateway to the West. There are the stories behind the French street names pronounced in a uniquely St. Louis manner, the names purged from the map during World War I, and the histories behind the pioneers, politicians, developers, and everyday people who built St. Louis. Here are also the tragic tales of the epic struggle to bridge the great rivers. These photographs, many never published before, will show it all.

About the Author:

Joe Sonderman grew up and still lives in Hazelwood. He worked in radio and as a traffic reporter for 25 years before coming to work at the Missouri Department of Transportation, all of which led to an interest in Historic Route 66 and the history of the streets, roads, and bridges. He has written several books on Route 66 from end to end and is an avid collector of Route 66 history and memorabilia.
