Default STL 250 article + cobblestones returning

There is a nice article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, as part of the 250th Anniversary Commemoration. It's titled 'Look Back 250 • Steamboats make St. Louis a bustling, prosperous city'. It includes some nice photos. Look Back 250

Also, attached are two photos of the cobblestones returning to Laclede's Landing. As part of an ongoing streets restoration, all streets and sidewalks are being rebuilt. As the crew goes through each block, all stones, some of which are 150+ years old, are removed and saved. After replacing the substructure with stable materials, each stone is hand-set into the street. All historic street lights were incorporated into the new streetscape. The new landscaping comes a little later.
