HISTORICAL POSTCARDS OF SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI
Public Square (view 5 of 7)

 This postcard is dated ca. 1950 but it must be pre-1947 because the "Pie" in the picture was removed in 1947. It shows the northwest corner of the Public Square, now called Park Central Square. The large building on the left is Heer's with its huge "Heer's since 1869" sign. The Missouri State Office building is the 10-story building in the center of the photograph. Across Boonville can be seen Barth's Clothing store. The caption on the back of the photograph states: "Springfield, the largest city in southwest Missouri has an unusually large and up-to-date retail district, centered principally around the public square."
