Description: 

Covering what was "New in Kansas City", this article mentions the installment of the Pickwick-Greyhound bus terminal. At the time, it was the world's largest and its placement in Kansas City was decided by the city's central location in the country. The city had highways extend in every direction, and had experienced steady growth and prosperity. The article markets Kansas City as "unexcelled by any other metropolis" as an industrial center because of its transportation facilities. Next to these statements are sketched illustrations of the bus station from ground and aerial views. The accompanying article pins low delivery costs and prompt service to 19 million recipients around the country as the driver of the city's industrial success. It also mentions the many kinds of transportation services flourishing via railway, interstate, river, and air. The article was written by the Industrial Committee of the Chamber of Commerce of Kansas City, Missouri, who provided a section at the bottom of the article that readers can fill out with their information and send back to receive industry facts about the city.
