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.
Photograph taken between 1935 and 1943 of civilians and members of the military at a bookmobile, Fairfax, Kansas City, Kansas. The bookmobile was part of the Works Progress Administration's library services program.
