This photograph looks north on the west side of the 300 block of Missouri Street of Alma, Kansas. The image reveals that many of the early business buildings were constructed of wood. Many were built during the boom years following Alma being declared the county seat in 1871 and the arrival of the railroad in 1880. This is the earliest known view of the business district in Alma.

Date: Between 1880 and 1885
