Back of Card:
In front of St. Louis' famous Union Station is the Aloe Plaza which features a beautiful $50,000 fountain in which a series of 19 bronze figures by Carl Milles, noted Swedish sculptor are used to depict the meeting of the waters, the Missouri and the Mississippi. It is named for the late husband of Mrs. Louis P. Aloe, who started the movement for the fountain and made a large contribution toward it. The Aloe Plaza was dedicated in 1940.
