Compton & Dry "Pictorial St. Louis" Vintage Lithograph Print Set

Compton & Dry "Pictorial St. Louis" Vintage Lithograph Print Set


If you want to see what our fine city looked like from the vantage point of a hot air balloon in 1875, look no further! We have a very rare, very special, very limited collection of vintage reproduction lithograph prints from Compton & Dry's Pictorial St. Louis, an illustrated aerial survey of the city first published in 1875, when St. Louis was still bigger than Chicago.  Each set of 6 includes plate numbers 1, 2, 4, 21, 22 and 24, and accurately depicts the entire downtown St. Louis  riverfront district as it appeared in 1875.  

This historical treasure trove is a true work of art!
