In the first half of the 20th century, St. Louis photographers used panoramic photography to capture moments from the city’s history—everything from baseball games and Charles Lindbergh’s homecoming to protests and disaster relief. The stunning, immersive images they created celebrate St. Louis’s highs, acknowledge its lows, and document the day-to-day lives of its people.
Panoramas of the City uses more than 50 of these photographs to bring St. Louis’s history to life. Through these images—several of which are blown up so large that you’ll feel like you can walk right through them—you can experience St. Louis’s past in a way you never have before. Discover new, all-but-forgotten stories about this city’s rich and diverse history, and take in the unfamiliar images of familiar moments, pictures that provide new perspective on well-known stories from the past.
Organized by the Missouri History Museum. Admission to the Missouri History Museum and this special exhibit is free.
