Photograph of improvements made to Blue River south to the limits of Swope Park, Kansas City, for purposes of flood control, ca. 1930s. This vantage point faces southwest from just south of 15th Street (now Truman Road). This photograph was taken before the river was diverted to west of Manchester Avenue (now Manchester Trafficway). The Spear Brand Mills Inc. at the now defunct intersection of 17th Street and Potter Avenue can be seen in the right background behind the trees.
