Product Overview

In 1904, from a plot of land that would soon become University City, eccentric publisher Edwin Gardner Lewis shone the beam of what he claimed was the worlds largest searchlight over the Worlds Fair in nearby St. Louis. Several years later, he claimed an even greater possession: a city, created around his publishing complex, complete with his own mayoral office, wide boulevards, and beautiful residences. The story of University City is one of urban wonder: from the citys Hilltop Neighbor and namesake, Washington University, to the diversity showcased in todays University City. The historic images in this volume illustrate the areas founding and development, from the largest printing press of the time, capable of producing 300,000 eight-page newspapers an hour, to the lion sculptures at the citys famed Gates of Opportunity, standing proud as the citys everlasting symbol. *Author: Wright, John A. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 128 *Publication Date: 2002/09/05 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.32 x 6.46 x 0.34 inches
