Iron StLouis Arch tram cable
St. Louis Arch tram cable.
This is an arch roughly the same shape as the famous Arch in St. Louis. It's made out of an old cable once used to hoist the tram that takes visitors to the top of the arch (a tram that might best be described as a series of large washing machine drums hung on a rope).
I got it in the gift shop under the arch, and chose it on the grounds that it was the only item there that actually contained a piece of the arch itself. I would have like one of the stainless steel panels that make up the outer shell, but they weren't for sale.
