Living St. Louis producer Anne-Marie Berger meets with Thomas Kempland. Saint Louis has a vast history of photography. Master photographer J.R. Eike took photographs of historic landmarks, parks, disasters, and events during the early 1900s. Kempland, a collector of memorabilia, discovered J.R. Eikes glass plate collection after visiting a garage sale. The Eike family needed to find someone to preserve negative images. Kempland has uploaded images online for Saint Louis natives to enjoy.
