Robert Dollar Building, San Francisco, California Ship from the Center not the Rim THE needs of modern business have caused a well - defined movement of industries toward the center of the country. It brings manufacturers closer to their cus tomers and nearer their raw ma terial supply. Eastern manufac turers whose markets have moved away from them feel the effect of this westward trend of industry. This is one of the reasons why 156 new industries have located in St. Louis in the last five years. St. Louis has approximately 3,500 fac tories in 211 different lines of busi ness. It is a city of diversified industry, which makes it strong in time of business depressions. It is near the great raw material districts, and has facilities for economical dis tribution to all markets. A factory in St. Louis reaches two thirds of the United States with a shorter freight haul and at lower cost than those of any other great industrial city.
