Description

Patients and staff of the St. Louis City Insane Asylum sit in chairs or stand in doorways along a clean and neat hallway posing for the camera.
Originally called the St. Louis County Lunatic Asylum, the separation of the county and the City of St. Louis, prompted the name change. After this period, it became the City Sanitarium, then the St. Louis State Hospital, then the St. Louis Psychiatric Rehabilitation Center (as part of the Missouri Department of Mental Health as of 2018).

Photograph taken March 28, 1904 by a staff member of the city's water utility. Digitized from a glass negative. Freely licensed/public domain and available as part of the St. Louis Water Division collection at the St. Louis Public Library.

The St. Louis Water Department Glass Plate Negative Collection is housed in an offsite storage facility, the former Compton Film Library. The collection consists of over 2500 images taken by the St. Louis Water Department of various Department projects and locations throughout the city.
