The City: St. Louis #3


Original Caption:

Bread Lines in the '70's

St. Louis -- St. Louis residents queue up at one of the city's food stamp distribution centers. The long lines are caused by a number of factors, including the closing of city offices for Columbus Day; some 9,000 United Auto Workers union members out on strike, and the short 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. hours of the center. (1970)

The only reference I can find to a Roosevelt Theatre in St. Louis was on North Leffingwell Ave. Is this correct? I'm trying to place the location of this photograph,
