This is a panoramic photo of the members of the Kansas Official Council, Topeka, Kansas, grouped on the steps of the Capitol. This is a gathering of various county officials and the 1924 meeting was, apparently, the largest group to that time. A newspaper article indicated that 750 people attended. There is a banner that says "Kansas Grows the Best Wheat in the World." A boys band, including some African-American boys, is kneeling at the front of the group.
