Kansas City Matchbook Blogging The Plaza

Another artfully crafted masterpiece post from the very BEST blogger in town . . . Take a look at enduring local history still on display for anybody who bothers to look:

Matchless city: A night at the Plaza

To reset this yearlong series : Back in the day when tobacco smoke blanketed the land, it seemed every American business and organization advertised itself on books of matches. You found these matchbooks in bowls or ashtrays, on display cases and vending machines and hat-check counters, in drugstores, gas stations, bars and restaurants, etc.
