The Gilded Age
—Cherokee-Lemp Historic District —St. Louisans were taking up the new American pastime of bicycling when this storefront was built in 1888. They were reading Walt Whitman's poems in the Leaves of Grass and learning about Theodore Roosevelt's western experiences in Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail. And St. Louis baseball fans were paying 50 cents for a ticket to watch the St. Louis Browns play at their ballpark on North Grand Avenue.
