Updated: The lead circa-1950 image today contains the parking lot and vehicles at the Famous-Barr department store located at 7425 Forsyth Boulevard in Clayton, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. The white building at the top-middle of the photo is the Garden Center, and to the far-right of it is a service station. The Clayton Famous-Barr store and parking lot have survived. In addition readers can learn the history and view photos of the three St. Louis area stores.
