A couple of days ago, I posted this photo showing several icons of Kansas City:
Ironically, yesterday Halls announced that it would close this store on the Country Club Plaza and consolidate it with its store in Crown Center. Halls had been an anchor on the Plaza for nearly fifty years. Rumor has it that the space will become a food court with all the Yum! Brand products you know and love: Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut.
Every town has a few: those objects or ideas that are instantly identifiable to the natives. This postcard shows five from Kansas City: Halls, Ward Parkway, the Royals, a Plaza tower, and… look closely… the Pitch.
I’m getting ready to enter a few new postcards in a juried art show, the theme of which is “Love This City.” The city in question is Kansas City and the metro area. Here are a couple of panoramic postcards.
