Description: Horizontal photograph of a two story commercial building with large windows on the first floor. Joseph Witek Florist on McPherson Avenue east of Euclid Avenue. The Central West End was home to many of St. Louis' wealthiest families from the late 1800s until the 1940s. The business district at Euclid and McPherson was a convenient shopping area for these wealthy residents. As the neighborhood's population became more diverse in the 1950s, this part of the Central West End developed a reputation as the "Greenwich Village of St. Louis."
