This black and white photograph taken from a glass plate negative shows the chambers of the Kansas Senate in Topeka. Built in 1866 as part of the east wing of the capitol, the chamber features cherry wooden desks and twenty-eight massive bronze and copper columns. The columns were hand-cast in Italy and were designed with air vents which allowed for heat to circulate through out the room. Today, forty senators occupy the chambers when the legislature is in session.
