16 Photos That Show How Much St. Louis Has Changed… And How Much It Hasn’t

You may have heard the saying by Jean-Baptiste Karr: “the more things change the more they stay the same.” This certainly seems to ring true in these photos of life in St. Louis. We have seen great changes, with buildings being demolished or new roadways built to handle a growing city, but these photos spanning over 100 years show that some parts of life are very much the same. Albeit, with some different names in a new century.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
