Missouri’s Major Cities Looked So Different In 1955. Saint Louis Especially

These amazing postcards of St. Louis show what the city looked like during the 1950s. In 1950, St. Louis was still one of America’s largest cities and the 1950 census recorded the city’s largest population to date. After 1950 however, the city saw a rapid change in population as residents moved into the surrounding suburbs. Now, St. Louis is Missouri’s second largest city behind Kansas City. Here are 10 photos depicting life in St. Louis nearly 70 years ago!
