Liggett-Meyers Tobacco Company, North Side

The Liggett and Meyers Tobacco Factory stretches between Folsom and Park Avenues, and the north side of the building is perhaps not as often photographed. There are large rounded arch windows of what was originally the power plant, with ten boilers that were served by the massive octagonal smokestack.

It’s one of the most popular smokestacks in St. Louis, as many people have told me.

The factory was built at a time when companies sought to project an image to the workers and customers in the general public that would have traveled by.
