I posted a cropped version of this a while back and found a contact print from the Schaffner negative and though the local guys would like to see how things have changed. Off to the left is now the campus of Meramec Community College. Back in the '30s when Walter took this shot, Big Bend was little more than a dirt road. Sadly, I'm old enough to remember the stone entrance to the place on Big Bend. Unfortunately, the image of the depot in the background isn't any better than it was before. I know that's a depot though.
