The four-story building(arrow) was the publishing plant and offices across the street was Keevil the Hatter who advertised his merchandise by hoisting a gigantic beaver atop his building. (1962) Fourth and Pine looking north on Fourth. The Globe joined the Missouri Democrat to itself in 1875 and shortly published the "greatest newspaper west of the Alleghenies" in the four-story building on the extreme right. Across the street were Keevil the Hatter (William H. Keevil) who advertised his merchandise by hoisting a gigantic beaver atop his roof. Hatters did an immense and elegant trade in the st. Louis of the 1870s, with many more establishments listed in the directory probably then at present. Next door to Keevil's, at the extreme left, was Charles E Mussey's Billard Parlor, one of the three listed in the 1878 directory. The Globe-Democrat Building is still standing (occupied by Mutual Insurors) but the busy click-clack of Mussey's Billard Parlor and the noisy merchandising at Keevil's has given way to the calm... of the Mississippi Valley Trust Company.
