Lulu's Vintage

St. Louis Standpipe Towers, Vess Soda Bottle, Anheuser-Busch & Crown Candy


On our trips we always try to cram in as much sight seeing as possible, leaving us needing a vacation from our vacation.
Today's post features just a few things that we saw and did in a day packed full of sight seeing...
*St. Louis standpipe towers which were used to control surges in water pressure.
*The Vess bottle, which stands in The Bottle District, an area of St. Louis that they are trying to revitalize.
*Anheuser-Busch, A St. Louis landmark
*Crown Candy Kitchen, which was packed full of people waiting for booths and standing in line for ice cream.
