Actually in 1900 St. Joseph reached it's maximum size - almost
103,000 residents which was a big number then (though the number
has been questioned as that was a doubling of the 1890
population). It's never been that size again. By 1910, it was a
little over 77,000. It pretty much has settled into the mid
70,000s since then.
Before the turn of the 20th Century, St. Joseph was a very wealthy town with a boulevard system, had one of the first electric streetcar systems, and a planned park system. St. Joe was still referred to in popular nationwide media into the 1940s, so I would think it was well known in the Midwest at the time of the image.
Now how it got to Davenport is another story.
