This black and white photograph, copied from The Kansas City Star newspaper, shows the Senate Chambers while it is in session. Built in 1886 as part of the east wing of the capitol, the room features cherry wooden desk and twenty-eight massive bronze and copper columns. The columns were hand-cast in Italy and were designed with air vents which allowed heat to circulate through out the room. Today, forty senators occupy the chambers when the legislature is in session.
