The History ~

This photo is from the article written by Tim O'Neil of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch featured in "St. Louis Today" dated April 30, 2018. It featured an archived St. Louis Post-Dispatch article from 1904.

 

The following is an excerpt:

"The crowds had been filing through the ticket lanes since 8 a.m. Five hours later, an ensemble led by bandleader John Philip Sousa burst with patriotic fanfare.

Far away in the White House, President Theodore Roosevelt threw an electric switch. In Forest Park, water rushed from the cascades and fountains. Nearly 200,000 people were there to cheer."
