TheLastGentleman Goes Downtown

Post by TheLastGentleman » Mon Jul 01, 2019 11:15 pm

Just going to share random pictures that don't go under any particular thread here.

Took these today, but in the future I may post some older shots I particularly like.

What a clean and beautiful city! What great pictures! You do us proud. That Peck's sign reminded me of the time my mother took me to that department store to buy me a winter coat. I was 16 and she was 57. The cashier asked her if she was my grandmother. My mother yelled back at her, "No! I am her great grandmother!"

Another thing, I recently saw an article about art deco. The author should have taken a look at some of the wonderful architecture in downtown Kansas City. I didn't appreciate all that surrounded me when I was a young girl. I guess I still don't.

Very nice.

Two Pershing is now branded "2300 Main".

That's a pat on the shoulder and a slap in the face followed by a sincere apology.

Looking at the condition of that vault under the sidewalk, I sure will not be walking on the east side of Wyandotte south of the Crown Plaza.

I like #22 (people bridge with lights on side). The great perspective draws you in. But all of them are worth viewing. Thanks much!

What's going on across the street from Municipal Auditorium?

A few years ago a small garage structure was demolished, leaving a ragged hole in its place. The cavities under the street were part of that building's basement.

The third picture in your post is actually a different part of downtown. It shows the steam pipe system being installed in front of John's Big Deck
