DescriptionPostcard of the Intercity Viaduct
Historical ArticleThe old post card in color titled United States Troops Crossing Intercity Viaduct, Kansas City, Mo. pictures the big bend of the Missouri River, freight cars in the West Bottoms and water standing in pools from recent heavy rains. The card, mailed July 8, 1914, to Miss Freda Neussli, 429 Fourth Street, Rock Island, Ill., reads:

This morning we went out to the Swope Park, took our dinner along. It is a long ride. We went down to the lake and up to the flower beds. Beautiful. Tomorrow we are invited at 3 o'clock to a Swiss family, Brunners, and they will take us with the automobile till 6 o'clock, and then to their house for supper. In the morning we go to Kansas City, Kansas. Love to all, Papa and Mamma.

The significance of the troop movement is not known. The United States had not entered World War I at this date. Perhaps a reader can supply an explanation.
