St. Louis is quintessentially American. It was the hub of a nation's ever changing identity. Once home to one of the largest civilizations in North America it was later the far flung post of the French empire. As it was passed back and forth between governments the constant flow of "new blood" established us as not just a river town but the launching point for The American Dream over generations. We are truly a "Gateway City".
The legacy of a life is more than brick and mortar. The black and white text of actions taken were fueled by the colors of feeling
and emotion. That past is a gallery of passions frozen in time.
