Speaker: Cameron Collins, Author of Lost Treasurers of St. Louis
- Cameron provided a great depiction of his book.
- While he is not originally from here, is quite evident of his love for our city and the great historian he has become.
- Unfortunately all of his book reserves were lost in the recent warehouse fire just west of SLU Hospital.
- Lost Treasurers of St. Louis highlights historical landmarks in our city.
- A few notable restaurants: Rosino’s – First restaurant west of Mississippi River to serve pizza. Check out blog: Distilled History – A drinking blog with a history problem.
- Outside of the recognizable beers brewed in STL, the book details history of Falstaff and Premium 905
- Theatres: Outside the Fox, did you know Steve Martin debuted The Jerk at the Mark Twain Theatre? Who has seen a movie at Ronnie’s Drive-Inn?
- Did you know the Fairground Park Swimming Pool was the largest and most dangerous at its time of existence?
- Lost Treasurers takes a deep look into The Admiral, Motordrome (South City), and Coral Court Motel on Route 66
Given our Club’s connection and history to the city, we were blessed to have Cameron come speak and present his book, as I felt our efforts are closely aligned.
