Category:  Architecture
Description:    Following formal studies at the prestigious Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, Edmond Jacques Eckel came to the United States in 1868 and settled in St. Joseph, MO. In 1880 he formed a highly successful partnership with his former draftsman, George R. Mann. In 1890, Eckel & Mann won the competition for St. Louis’ new City Hall for their French Renaissance Revival entry entitled "St. Louis 1892." Mann and draftsman Harvey Ellis relocated to St. Louis hoping to meet the 1892 completion date established in the competition. Despite their efforts, the building was only partially finished by the late 1890s.
