Gateway Arch, Saint Louis - MO - USA
An official card - it's so nice to receive them! This came from a Saint Louis postcrosser that has chosen a very nice card showing the amazing Gateway Arch. Thanks a lot David, I would love to get up there, the view must be breathtaking - maybe one day you could "Meet me in St Louis"! This postcard took 20 days to arrive!
The Gateway Arch is a 630-foot (190 m) monument in Saint Louis, Missouri. Clad in stainless steel and built in the form of a flattened catenary arch, it is the tallest man-made monument in the United States, Missouri's tallest accessible building, and the world's tallest arch. Built as a monument to the westward expansion of the United States, it is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial and has become an internationally famous symbol of St. Louis.
