Description: View of Louis A. Benoist Residence and its iron fence on the northwest corner of Eighth and Pine Streets. A streetlamp stands at the intersection of the roads. At the time the photo was taken, wealthy owners often lived close to their businesses for convenience. The son of a Canadian trader, Louis Benoist became one of the most prominent bankers in St. Louis. He opened the first banking house in St. Louis in 1832 and was so successful he opened a branch in New Orleans in 1838. When Benoist died in 1869 his estate was estimated to be worth more than three million dollars.
