Dr. Gerald Perschbacher will make a lively PowerPoint presentation on the BIG SCREEN highlighting many St. Louis facts about the Golden Age of Autos

Dr. Perschbacher is an author and writer who is known internationally for his research and discoveries in the realm of automotive history and on other subjects.  His presentation will show rare pictures of people, cars, and places, accompanied by sparkling commentary.  Many brands of cars made ONLY in St. Louis will be explored -- such as Moon, Gardner, Dorris, and others.  The large auditorium has been reserved (comfortable seating for about 300).  NO CHARGE to attend!  The audience will be able to participate in several spots during the presentation, so there will be loads of fun! 

At 2:30 p.m., following the initial presentation, will be a visual treat by Andy Cross, scenic artist, discussing the creative side of murals on exhibit at the Route 66 exhibition at the History Museum (also available for viewing on the day of the show).

No reservations are required for the day, but remember that this is on a first-come, first-served basis as space allows

This is the Missouri History Museum where you can find pictures and other information of the Civil War in Missouri.  There is also more than just the Civil War items at this site since this is a history museum.
