Penney


The caption: “Located at 5930 Martin Luther King Drive in the Wellston Loop commerical district, the Wellston J.C. Penney (actually in the city of St. Louis) was built in 1948 and designed by William McMahon in the International Style. St. Louis city once had another International Style neighborhood department store, but that store (a Famous Barr) was wrecked in 1994.”
