The collection consists of over 2500 images taken by the St. Louis Water Department of various Department projects and locations throughout the city. Construction of the Chain of Rocks Water treatment plant is well documented in the collection along with pumping stations, reservoirs, and street scenes of St. Louis. A preliminary finding aid to the collection is available.
