South Broadway Neighborhood

I was born in 1939 in St. Louis and lived on Broadway and Soulard in the South Broadway neighborhood. My family owned a men’s and boy’s clothing store (Louis Clothiers). My family lived above the store. There were many Jewish families who were store owners and some lived above their stores. There was a synagogue which we attended (Bnai Zion) on Third and Lafayette. There is more information on this neighborhood in Dr. Walter Ehrlich’s book Zion In The Valley Volume II. The South Broadway neighborhood was from Chouteau on the north to Sidney on the south.
