TitleA Young City Will Greet You
AbstractPhotos and article about tourist sites in Kansas City for the "1939 Biennial Convention of the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs in Kansas City. Description and history of the city and its various landmarks including the following: Petticoat Lane shopping district (pictured), Union Station, the Kansas City Power & Light Building and City Hall, various airports, packing plants and American Royal, Municipal Auditorium, the park and boulevard system, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and the Country Club District, etc.
NotesPage 49: "Replacing such one-time 'skyscrapers' as the New York Life Biulding in downtown Kansas City, are the Kansas City Power and Light Building housing the 'Lighting Institute' whose extensive tests with color lighting in relation to visibility and series of model rooms make it especially interesting to women."
