St. Louis Arch and Market Street

St. Louis is a pleasant city and I was lucky to get a nice day. I walked down Market Street down to the St. Louis Arch. It is a pleasant walk.  There was evidently some urban renewal done here to make all the green space. There are lots of offices and government buildings but I don’t think many people actually live down here. Above is the Courthouse against the Arch. This is the courthouse where the Dred Scott case was first decided. That decision helped lead to the Civil War. The man most responsible for ending it is below.

Below is the St Louis Arch. It is much bigger than it seems in pictures and pictures don’t do it justice.

You can see some people near the arch that shows the scale. 

I have some other pictures that are interesting but you can click on them separately.
