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.
Update: These cliffs are not in fact natural, but are a former quarry.
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.
