Title: O.R. Gaertner Slide Collection

Description: O.R. (Pat) Gaertner (1888-1980) was an engineer who took up photography as a hobby after he retired. The engineers of many downtown St. Louis construction projects in the 1960s and 70s allowed him to document the progress of their projects. The O.R. Gaertner Collection contains about 325 35mm Ektachrome slides showing the construction of the Mayfair Hotel and the Mansion House Apartments, 266 labeled and dated slides documenting the reconstruction of the "Spanish Pavilion" from the 1964 New York World's Fair in downtown St. Louis, the construction of "Garage G," a Post Office addition, and a few shots of Kiener Plaza, the American Zinc Building, the Pet Incorporated building, "Garage E" in downtown St. Louis, the Gateway Tower building, and other downtown sites.
