Title: Sidewalk in front of 11 South Sixteenth Street, facing north toward Market Street.

Description: Sidewalk in front of 11 South Sixteenth Street, facing north toward Market Street. The steeples of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist Catholic Church and Centenary Church are visible north of Market Street. The two churches were exempted from the massive demolition project that preceded the construction of the Memorial Plaza extension west to Aloe Plaza. Both churches were built in the 1860s as part of Lucas Place, the first private street and residential development in St. Louis. During the late 1880s St. John the Apostle and Evangelist served as the Cathedral of St. Louis after the city's Catholic population had outgrown the Old Cathedral at Third and Chestnut Streets.
