The water in the fountain is dyed blue in honor of the local professional baseball team. Kansas City has more fountains than any city in the world except Rome, Italy, and is officially known as the City of Fountains. Community Christian Church, the low white building in the background, featured blue exterior lights in place of its usual white ones. The church was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

The Liberty Memorial is a memorial in Kansas City, Missouri, to the soldiers who died in World War I. Groundbreaking began on November 1, 1921, and the memorial was completed and dedicated on November 11, 1926. At night, the top of the 217-foot (66 m) tall memorial tower emits steam illuminated by bright orange lights. The Liberty Memorial, which is in Penn Valley Park, houses the official World War I museum of the United States, which opened to the public in December 2006. The building is designed in Beaux Arts Classicism and Egyptian Revival style of architecture with a limestone exterior. The Liberty Memorial is a National Historic Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places.

A framed print of a replica rocket hangs in this hallway display. The photograph shows the replica rocket standing on the roof of a building in the Crossroads Arts Districts of Kansas City, Missouri. The replica, with the name of a now defunct airline, is a smaller version of a rocket that once stood in a popular west coast amusement park.

Romance on Two Wheels

Almost half of all adults in Copenhagen, Denmark, ride their bicycles to work, and many bike with their sweethearts, too.

There’s love on two wheels in the American Midwest, too!

Two sweethearts take a break from biking to cool their feet in the water of the J.C. Nichols Fountain on the Country Club Plaza, Kansas City, Missouri.

The Plaza was the first shopping center in the world designed to accommodate shoppers arriving by automobile. Established in 1922 by J. C. Nichols, the Plaza was designed architecturally after Seville, Spain.

On the left in the background are the twin beams of the Steeples of Light, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the early 1940s as part of Wright’s design of the Community Christian Church building at 46th and Main Streets in Kansas City, Missouri.
