From the archives: Downtown KC in 1888

The Kansas City Star

This view of Downtown Kansas City in 1888, looking west from about Second and Main, shows streets cut brutally through the south bluffs. The natural sand bar south of what is now the Downtown Airport can be seen at the upper right. Not much is known about this photo, which last ran in The Star on Sunday, Nov. 18, 1979.
