The Missouri History Museum is displaying J.M. Palmatary's "Bird's Eye View of Saint Louis, MO" for the first time since 1983. The 1858 map, which is 4 1/2 feet wide and almost 8 feet long, can be seen in the research center at 225 South Skinker on Tuesday May 6 and Wednesday May 7 from noon to 5 p.m. The quick decision to display the lithograph, which was made Friday, was prompted by the American Historical Print Collectors Society annual meeting in St. Louis.

Thank you for displaying J.M. Palmatary's lithograph. History/geneology shows that he and I are related. My name is Elaine Palmatary Holbrook Smith and was born in Chester County, PA, July 12, 1937 to Aaron Franklin Palmatary and Madeline Payne Palmatary. I have had the good fortune to view other lithographs of J.M. Palmatary's and most recently in Williamsburg, Va. Thank you for posting. Elaine
