MISSOURI BOTANICAL GARDEN
Illustrated History of the Missouri Botanical Garden
Take a stroll through time and explore nearly two centuries of images that document the creation and the development of the Missouri Botanical Garden. You will be greeted by ladies with parasols, children in their beautiful nineteenth century clothing, and even the Garden's founder, Henry Shaw. In these historical images you will see many buildings and gardens which today's visitor might recognize but many which are now changed, or lost forever.
More than five hundred images are available for viewing and are taken from the Missouri Botanical Garden Archives. These include glass plate negatives, hand-tinted prints, stereographs, postcards and manuscripts.
