Kansas City: Western Auto Building

This is the old Western Auto headquarters in Kansas City, rehabbed into wonderful apartments.  We visited and were treated to an entire curved wall of windows. The old neon sign on the roof still works, though the owners' association chooses to light it only a couple hours in the evening. It was breaking the bank. (I'm sorry I don't have a picture of the neon.)

We are on our way to northern Nebraska for a week's vacation in the Sand Hills and Niobrara River region.  I discovered the area a few years ago on a return trip from Utah.  It's not the Nebraska people see when they drive from the East to Denver or Salt Lake City, as I will illustrate in coming days.
