Title: Northwest corner of Sixth Street and Market Street.

Description: The Market Tavern and other businesses at the northwest corner of Sixth Street and Market Street. Businesses are located at 601-607 Market Street. A menu with prices is visible outside a coffee shop. Advertisements for Hyde Park Beer are featured at the Market Tavern, seen here. An addition to St. Louis City included 4 blocks set aside for a public park that became known as Hyde Park. In 1862 William Moran selected a site adjacent to the park to run his brewery, Emmett’s Brewery. They name was changed to Hyde Park Brewery in 1876 when it came under new ownership. After the repeal of prohibition the company produced Hyde Park True Lager Beer and Hyde Park ’75. The company continued to prosper and in 1948 was bought by Grisedieck Western Brewery, the producers of Stag Beer.
