  1. Question: Was that supposed to be looking up Olive street from the Mississippi River or from Choteau's Pond?

  2. Olive Street runs east and west and formerly used to go all of the way to the riverfront, between what is now the north leg of the Arch and Laclede's Landing.

    Chouteau's Pond used to be about ten blocks south of Olive.
