Of those featured are the S. E. Scott & Co. Real Estate Office; the Journal Building with views of the composing room, press room, office, and editorial room; The Deere Mansur & Co. Farm Machinery building; the McCord & Nave Merchantile Co.; the Union Depot; The Geo. Y. Smith & Co. Dry Goods Palace with views of the mail order and silk departments; the Medical College at the University of Kansas; the Board of Trade Building; the salesroom of the Smith American Organ Co.; the F. T. Richards & Co. Hardware building, the Stockyards; two buildings belonging to the Victor B. Buck & Co. Boot & Shoe Factory; the Bank of Kansas City; and the T. M. James & Sons Wholesale Grocery Building. The bottom border of the print reads "KANSAS CITY-THE METROPOLIS OF THE NEW WEST- ITS ORIGIN, GROWTH, AND PROSPERITY- SOME OF ITS TYPICAL INDUSTRIES ILLUSTRATED". Colors are faint but the movement and excitement of such a burgeoning time are prevalent in the illustrations.
