The Gateway Arch Ephemera Collection, Artifact of the Month for November 2012
November 20, 2012
Gateway Arch Ephemera Collection
This collection originated in 1989 with a park exhibit called, "Not Quite Arch Rivals." The park continued to acquire items to add to the collection - most often photographs of signs featuring the Arch and business cards of firms that use the Arch as part of their logo.
Several of the items and images from the collection were used in the production of this year's Archives Month poster:
Due to the vast number of items manufactured with the image of the Arch and the limited storage space available, the preferred way to "collect" items today is via a photograph. If you have an item which you think might be appropriate for the collection, please contact the archivist.
