High, But Not That High

This morning the Missouri River at Kansas City, hit a crest of 36.4 feet.  Highest crest since 1993, when the crest was 48.9 feet.   Some pix below.... The only black and white is 1993.

Above, today, below July 1993.  Use the dome for comparison. 

The shot above show the Missouri River behind/north of the Downtown Airport and in front/south.

 Above, Kaw Point.   On this day, none of the Lewis and Clark statue is visible.

Kan Kan Restore

Got to photograph this delightful little property in a part of the Greater Kansas City area that I didn't know existed.   The back yard runs right up to the State Line...

                                          Eric and Erica did most of the work themselves.

                               This side of the back fence is Kansas, the other side is Missouri.

Historic Northeast Mansions - Volume 12 - 512 Gladstone Boulevard.

 All I know about this home is that it was built in 1885 and was just north on the Street from the
from the D.O. Smart residence.  It was classified in writings as a brick, New Amsterdam style residence, with a stepped parapet gable built by Martin E. Tomlinson for an unknown owner.  Tomlinson was also the builder for the Scarritt-Royster residence.

 At any rate, here it is... it's being renovated and is for sale.   Contact Eric B. and Associates for further information.
