St Louis , Missouri

Nestled below the Gateway Arch are three of the paddle wheel excursion boats enjoyed by visitors to the Gateway City.

St Louis has been known as the "Gateway to the West" because of the important role it played in the westward expansion of the United States. In 1965 the Gateway Arch was constructed as part of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial; the arch has since become the iconic image of St. Louis.

Thank you to Lsittmann to send me this beautiful postcard, it's my new addition to another postcards collection from the state of USA.
