Snapshots: Arch offers a wealth of objects underground

Sam Washburn | St. Louis Beacon | 2013

This article originally appeared in the St. Louis Beacon: In Snapshots, illustrator Sam Washburn looks at a regional place or thing that has caught his attention. Because of all the discussion about the renovation of the Arch grounds, he decided to check out the Museum of Westward Expansion.

We found a wealth of objects in an area that few people talk about.

The Beacon hopes these will make the reader smile in recognition, as often happened with his earlier series: Intersections.

To see those, click on the location: The LoopDowntown, Bellefontaine Cemetery , Florissant , First Night , Maplewood , South Grand , Alton , The Hill , Forest Park , St. Charles , the Concrete Block District, Cherokee Street and Dogtown.
