Default St Louis Riverfront Trivia

Thanks, Darin, for the interesting link! The pictures of the cobblestones on the St. Louis levee remind me that, many years ago, Ruth Ferris (1897-1993), my patron saint of steamboating, was actually arrested for removing a loose ringbolt from the levee. She had to appear in court and, when all the "smoke" cleared, Ruth was given permission to keep the ringbolt! It was in the backyard of her Brentwood home, along with some cobblestones, until Ruth and her sister, Frances, sold the house in 1991.
