Fourth & Olive

The intersection in the foreground is North Fourth and Olive streets. The three closest buildings on the west side of the street are all still there, mostly unmolested.

Meet Me in St. Louis

I'm guessing this is Broadway looking south, perhaps a few blocks north of Market Street. Broadway was the eastern edge of the streetcar system and there are no tracks going off to the left (east). I always enjoyed riding the streetcar in St. Louis as a kid.

Street Name?

Anyone know what street this is in St. Louis? I would be greatly interested in more information.
