Event Type: **Author Events
Age Group(s): Adult, Seniors
Date: 12/16/2019
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Description:
 Discover quirky, provocative, awe-inspiring, and just plain bizarre St. Louis scenes!

The images in this singular collection depict one-of-a-kind moments that we’ll never see again, mainly because they reflect a specific place in time in history. Glimpses of everyday work, family, and public
life—not to mention scenes of leisure, sport, and entertainment—convey what made each period
unique. Informative captions place each scene in context and give substance to moments that range
from mundane to wondrous and, in some cases, downright wacky. Authors Cameron Collins and Jaime Bourassa bring their knowledge of St. Louis and their unique take on its photographic history to Scenes of Historic
Wonder. Join them in this visual look back at the interesting and offbeat in St. Louis.

Books will be available for purchase by the authors at the event.
