This black and white photograph shows the Capitol Building and Loan Association at 534 Kansas Avenue in Topeka, Kansas. When this brick structure was completed in 1924 it was considered "an architectural landmark in the Midwest." The architect George Grant Emslie, sculptor Emil Robert Zettler, and muralist John W. Norton designed the building on a theme to "symbolize the Kansas home as a safeguard of liberty and stability." In 1968, the building was demolished.

Date: Between 1924 and 1934
