‘Alma, Kansas Parade – c.1886’

Alma, Kansas Parade - c.1886

This Louis Palenske photograph of a parade on Missouri Street was taken from the roof of the Palenske Block, located at 204-210 Missouri, looking north. In this view, circa 1886, the first Alma, Kansas courthouse is seen to the left of center, sporting a 2nd story porch and balcony, while just to the north of the courthouse building one sees the Bank of Wabaunsee County. At the far right one can see the sign for the Western Hotel.
