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.
