it never ceases to amaze me how cool KC was in the early 1900's. What an incredible vibrant and fulfilling city....where parking lots now stand...

I think it's hard for us to understand how busy the West Bottoms were at one time--when the train depot was there; the tavern and hotel district; the streetcar tunnel through the bluffs; the elevated streetcar line across the bottom, and the 9th St. Incline operating.
