Kansas City Here I Come

All cities are mad: but the madness is gallant.
All cities are beautiful: but the beauty is grim.
~Christopher Morley

Whenever we are driving to the city and the big buildings become visible
in the sky line....
my favorite thing to say is

"There's the city kids"

It never gets old.

To me.
:)


This is a view of our city from the Liberty Memorial Tower.
It's a great view.

I love to imagine it when the Union Station was bustling with trains

and horses still clopped on brick streets.

The texture and tone really gives an old time feeling that only the modern buildings belie.

It was a simpler time back then Chas, in some ways it was more wonderful than today, love your photo. Many prayers for Shauna, big hugs to all the family. Are you feeling better?.....:-)

Hope you're having fun!

I can just picture horse drawn carts, the grand old days. Now fast forward 100 years what will the city look like then? This photo will be that era looking back yearning for buses, cars and trucks... not space shuttles! :-)

What a terrific image!

I love the sepia tone in your photo. It does give a feel of long ago. We visited Union Station in KC a few years ago. They have done such a nice job of restoring it, and I too imagined it when it was bustling with trains and people.
