DescriptionPostcard of Downtown Kansas City, North from Gillham Road
Historical ArticleKansas City from Robert Gillham Road, Kansas City, Mo. is the title of an old post card of about 1914, and pictures a bird's eye view of the city.

Carrie Whitney describes the period of the early 1900s as Kansas City's era of remarkable growth. In a chapter of her history titled the The Newer City, she writes: in five years the erection of new skyscrapers, bank buildings, theaters, store buildings and other edifices changed the appearance of the downtown district. Three large office buildings were completed in 1907 at a combined cost of nearly $4 million. They were the R. A. Long Building, the Scarritt Building and the National Bank of Commerce Building.
