Not available online
TitleTravel through Missouri
AbstractPhotos and article about tourist sites in Missouri, especially along "U. S. Highways 40 and 50" between Kansas City and Saint Louis. Description of sites in Kansas City and other places in the state including the Ozarks.
NotesPage 22: "South and just slightly east of St. Joseph is Kansas City, 'Gateway to the West,' the state's second largest city, located at the confluence of the Kansas and Missouri rivers. Its enormous stockyards are only one source of prosperity for this metropolis which is the hub for agricultural and live-stock areas surrounding it. The well-planned city prides itself upon its swank Country Club residential area and its Plaza shopping district, and upon Swope Park with its Starlight Theatre."
