Now Available! Gaslight Square: an oral history
by Thomas Crone


The book tells the full 50 year story of St. Louis’ Gaslight Square – from inception to decline to redevelopment – in the voices by people who were there. The interviews pass through the conservative innocence of the ‘50s to the fringe of Beat philosophy to the counterculture of the ‘60s an the political turmoil that saw us through the Vietnam War. Gaslight Square: An Oral History leaves us with more than an enjoyable read or feeling of nostalgia; it leaves us with a deeper historical understanding – of where we have come from as a City, as a nation, and as a people, as well as where we might be headed. 200 pages, hardback with dust jacket.
