These five black and white photographs (a set of two and a set of three images) show views of the State Capitol Building in Topeka, Kansas. Located on twenty acres of land once owned by Cyrus K. Holliday, work began on the capitol October 17, 1866, when the cornerstone was laid for the east wing. Thirty-seven years later the statehouse, an example of French Renaissance architecture and Corinthian details, was completed at a total cost of $3,200,588.92. The set of two images is taken from south east of the Capitol, with a state office building in the background. The group of three images views the Capitol from the south west. The Kansas House of Representatives and the Kansas Senate chambers and offices of the members of both houses are in this building as is the office of the Governor.
