Dedicated to Raymond Flynn

Laborers Local 110's office on Enright Avenue, across the street from the Veteran's Hospital in St. Louis, has a plaque dedicating the building in memory of former union officer Raymond Flynn. The plaque was placed on the building in the mid-1980s around the time that Flynn, a labor racketeer, was embroiled in St. Louis' last organized crime war. Flynn was later convicted for his role in the car bombing campaign that killed and maimed several mob figures.
