Travel by River and Rail in Early St. Louis

Two major elements that have long shaped St. Louis history are the focus of a new exhibition at St. Louis Lambert International Airport . The St. Louis Mercantile Library at the University of Missouri St. Louis has opened its exhibition Travel by River and Rail in Early St. Louis at the Lambert Gallery, located on Terminal 1 Bag Claim Level, near exit 11.

The exhibition highlights the design of riverboats and railroads in the 19th and early 20th centuries through historic scale models, drawings, diagrams, and artwork, such as the work of Otto Kühler, a railroad designer and artist who created dynamic prints of train engines. There are also historic prints of river and rail travel, such as night scenes on the Mississippi River or the first train arriving in a frontier town by Currier & Ives. There are also models of steam engine trains, Pullman cars, flatboats, tugboats and paddle wheelers in the exhibition.
