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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
