Peter Machiels & Emmet Michael Hoskinson

I like old buildings of the 18 hundreds I like to imagine what the building looked like in it's hay day. I look for old pictures of them. There are many old pictures of Kansas building and this one I found while looking for something else.

Note. The pictures can be enlarged by pushing on them.
