The businesses at the further intersection are located at Broadway and Locust. Scarritt-Comstock Furniture Co. and Scruggs Vandervoort and Barney department store are pictured at left. At right, a large clock advertises Mermod and Jaccard's jewelry store. Mermon and Jaccard’s Jewelry was started in the early 19th century by Swiss immigrant Louis Jaccard. By the 1890’s it was one of the oldest and most prominent jewelers in St. Louis. The location shown in this photo was the firms most famous location, but would be destroyed by fire in 1897 just before Christmas when the vaults were filled with gifts. Mermon and Jaccard’s would eventually be bought out by the Scruggs-Vandervoort-Barney Department Store, shown here, an old firm started in St. Louis in the 1850’s.
