I hate to break this to a Westsider, but 80% of what you see in that photo is in KCK.

BTW, that photo was taken by a large-format panoramic camera mounted to a kite. For an equally impressive view of Quality Hill, or an even more impressive view of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake, Google "Lawrence captive airship,"

Sad part is that it sure looked better back then.

Now if they were smart back then, that would have been the gathering point for the roundup of all the central U.S. niggers for their one-way trip back to Africa.
