Update: The City’s Work House was once located very near here, as I wrote in St. Louis Magazine in January of 2021.
The South Riverfront, cut off by cliffs and I-55, is not as immediately accessible as the North Riverfront.
But it still holds its curiosities, like this elevator, below.
These cliffs looks natural, as they seem to undulate, as if water has slowly worn them away over the millennia.
The old dog pound has been renovated as a forestry division office, it seems.
