I love this book. I've been living in KC for about 9 years now so I wanted to see what different parts of the city used to look like so this book is perfect for that. Plus it looks great on my coffee table! :) There are two more KC "Then and Now" books but they are quite a bit more expensive and I'm not sure why. This is the first one in the series.

Darlene Isaacson chose a dynamic picture of Kansas City Station for her book cover.
Who could resist looking inside? Once there, the reader is captured. It is that interesting
to anyone interesting in camparative architecture and history as well as the thrill of viewing the pictures.

I bought this book when it first came out and found some Major errors in the building histories and in the current descriptions of buildings. Obviously this is one of those slap it together and get it on the shelf kind of Not very serious looks at a city kind of books. There are several examples but one that sticks out is the Kansas City Masonic temple located at 9th and Harrison built in 1911 and still being used by the Freemasons. According to the author it is vacant falling down and will be gone soon! In her "Now" picture the lights are on at the front of the building! Just sloppy work the sign of a true armature. The story according to the Masons is the building has been continually occupied since 1911 and there are currently 8 Masonic bodies who meet at 9th and Harrison and the building is currently under going renovations in preparation for the buildings 100 Year anniversary. Many great names of Kansas City History have been members there and the membership have plans well into the future for that building.
