A kaleidoscope of bygone places, events, and items once identified with the Gateway City, Lost Treasures of Saint Louis recaptures the essence of cherished times that still resonate with St. Louisans. The book celebrates dancing to Ike and Tina at the Club Imperial,
Bowling for Dollars at the Arena, watching movies at Ronnie’s Drive-In and more. Rarely seen photos and artifacts revive eateries like Miss Hulling’s Cafeteria and the Crystal Palace, landmarks like the Goldenrod Showboat and Sportsman’s Park and locally manufactured products like Mavrakos Candy and Falstaff Beer. Gone but not forgotten, all of the subjects featured elicit nostalgia and also reveal how the past has shaped our city.
