Missouri Pacific
Kansas City, Kansas (Kaw River Junction)
May 30, 1975

Looking south from the same (Minnesota Avenue) bridge, things are a bit more recognizable. That's the Kansas River in the center, with a Missouri Pacific freight crossing the river and the Union Pacific in the foreground. Just across the river is Kaw Point Junction. The large highway bridge in the background is US I-70 today, although at the time it had apparently not yet become part of the Interstate Highway System.
