Old Barnes Hospital, Still There

W.C. Persons, View of Barnes Hospital, c. 1940, Missouri History Museum, N31052

Barnes Jewish Hospital is now dominated by the two large Modernist towers that front Forest Park. But if you go back around to the other side, you realize that the original hospital building, to the far left in the top image, can be clearly seen in the bottom photo. The new towers were built on top of the old buildings.
