Cherokee-Lemp History Fair

May, 2007

Saint Louis Mayor Francis Slay and Ward 9 Alderman Kenneth Ortmann take a ride in the Budweiser II Land Cruiser. Directing the tour of the Cherokee-Lemp Neighborhood is Bev Cotton, History Fair Chairwoman and Chauffer Greg R. Rhomberg, director of Saint Louis 2004 Exposition.


     This past month Greg Rhomberg, Director of St. Louis 2004 Exposition, showcased the Budweiser II Land Cruiser, and a 1936 Dodge "Woody", at The Cherokee-Lemp History Fair.  The Budweiser II, built by Anheuser Busch, was proudly on display at Cafe Bologna, Grotto & Sculpture Garden, located just behind The Purple Cow  at 2010 Cherokee Street, St. Louis MO. 

     Available at Cafe Bologna were sandwich combos including ice cold drinks.  Bologna served on Wonder Bread, either cold or even better fried.

     Jaspers Radio Museum located just up the street from the Purple Cow held its first liquidation sale ever in the 70 plus years of collecting. 100ís of buyers swarmed the museum early Saturday morning to purchase antique and collectible items of every description.

     Legendary Artist and Sign Painter Lonnie Tettaton was also liquidating his famous collection of sign painting books and some of his original art work.
