This birds-eye view of Volland, Kansas, looks from the southwest. Down the tracks, one can see the Volland depot. Two connected cattle cars are parked at the stockyards and a third beyond the crossing. The old store is partially obscured; however, Otto Krazters' old house, which sat against the store, can be seen. In the foreground is a railroad house and to the north of it the Volland Blacksmith Shop. When this view was taken, construction had yet to begin on the new Kratzer Brothers' General Store.

Creator: Kratzer, Otto
Date: Between 1910 and 1920
