Photograph of men standing on the James Street Station Platform, Kansas City, Kansas before the last streetcar to pass over the elevated street railway, also known as the "L" structure. This streetcar line connected the West Bottoms with downtown Kansas City, Missouri via the 8th Street Tunnel. It was closed that day after 35 years of use as the "L" structure on the west side of the route was in disrepair. Businessmen demanded repairs and five years later it was re-opened for use.
Circa 1925 photograph of a streetcar at the intersection of 15th Street (presently Truman Road) and Main Street. This vantage point faces west from the south side of 15th Street, just east of its intersection with Main Street.
