These two black and white photographs show the south side of the capitol in Topeka, Kansas. Located on twenty acres of land once owned by Cyrus K. Holliday, work began on the structure on 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.
