This photograph shows a street scene of Kansas Avenue in Liberal, Kansas. Although they are only partially visible, there are signs for at least three drug stores among the businesses in this picture. Starting from the left side, the first sign is for Taylor's Drugs. The next sign reads, "Dr. Beaty, Dentist, X-Ray." Another drug store sign is visible after that, then a sign for the Stoner Jewelry Company. Other signs on the left side of the street are less visible in the background. On the right side of the street, the sign for the Warren Hotel is visible, and farther in the background, to the left of the sign, another drug store and soda sign is partially visible. Other signs on the right side of the picture include a theater marquee, signs advertising Blatz Milwaukee Beer and Budweiser, and a sign reading, "Department Stores" on the far right. Many automobiles are visible along the street, and several people are also visible along the street.
