The old Switzer’s Licorice factory sat on the Missouri side of the Eads Bridge, between a cobblestone street and the mighty Mississippi under the shadow of the Arch. I heard the building was demolished a few years ago, which kind of makes me sad because of the loss of sense of history it evoked. I loved the faded, painted brick – it was a landmark that always reminded me of growing up in St. Louis.
