Bringing worldwide attention to the city, another wave of growth continued in St. Louis which lasted through World War I. By 1850, river traffic had increased to such an extent that St. Louis had become the second largest port in the country, with commercial tonnage exceeded only by New York. It had also grown to be the largest city west of Pittsburgh. On some days, as many as 170 steamboats could be counted on the levee, some of which were literally “floating palaces,” complete with chandeliers, lush carpets, and fine furnishings.
The first was a raging fire that destroyed 15 city blocks and 23 steamboats along the riverfront. Later in the same year, St. Louis was to suffer from a serious epidemic of cholera, which took thousands of lives. The next decade saw a large number of immigrants populating the city, especially those from Germany and Ireland, driven by the Old World potato famine. The first steamboat arrived on July 27, 1817, beginning the boomtown days of St. Louis as an important river city.
