St. Louis In Photos: Then And Now

Do you have an old family photo that you'd like to recreate? Try it and send the old and new results to us.

Have you wondered what an area looked like years ago? Maybe the spot was totally different, such as 4th and Market. Maybe it has been lovingly maintained, as in the DeMenil Mansion.

Find an old photo and then take one of the place now. When you send the pair, include where you got the old picture and what information you know about it. We'll work on getting permission for the original so we can share your results.

As the celebration of the area's 250th birthday continues, we will print more old and new pairs and would like to include works by our readers.
