The airship photo looks Isn’t hardly recognizable as Kansas City. I only spotted a few extant buildings at a glance and just a few more notable lost buildings.

Looking at downtown Kansas City from Harlem on the north side of the Missouri River.

This image seems like the opening scene in a film noir movie. Soon a detective will enter the frame and move down the hillside to examine a body.

The Folly sits alone among urban renewal clearing prior to it's renovation. The photo is from the 1970s. The Folly was slated to be demolished before preservationists came to the rescue.

Cannot quite decipher photos of Bryant. Is it a late construction photo? The top setback seems oddly truncated.
The hand sketch in the middle of the views from the P&L resembles the Empire State more than KCPL.

All the junk they've piled on the Bryant Building makes it look bulkier than it actually is. The top setback has always been a bit stubby.
