Postcard of the 71st Street (now Gregory Boulevard) bridge across the Blue River in Swope Park, Kansas City, Missouri. This vantage point faces north-northeast just south of the bridge. The back of the postcard includes a brief caption about the bridge and a short letter to a Miss Daisy of St. Joseph, Missouri.
This picture was taken looking northwest just south of the intersection of 71st Street (now Gregory Boulevard) and Wornall Road. In November 1925, a shopping center known as Romanelli Shops was completed at the southwest corner of Wornall Road and 71st Street. These shops included R. L. Fish and Sons Grocers, Mason's Pharmacy, O. D. Stewart Barber Shop, Ambassador Cleaners, and a Piggly Wiggly Grocery Store.
