K… Kansas City
Kansas City Power and Light Building, Kansas City, Missouriby Jeff Bridges
Out of many great photos of this building, going with this one.
About the building (Wikipedia):

The Kansas City Power and Light Building (also called the KCP&L Building and the Power and Light Building) is a landmark skyscraper located in Downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The building was constructed by Kansas City Power and Light in 1931, as a way to promote new jobs in Downtown Kansas City. Since then, the Art Deco structure has been a prominent part of the Kansas City skyline. The east side of the building faces the Power & Light District which bears its name, and the building’s iconic lantern appears on promotional materials and signage for the district.

Katz Drug Store, Kansas City, MO

Got this comment in yesterday on a photo I posted a few months ago of a cool Deco building in Kansas City, Katz Drug Store.

Gator:
I am 75 yrs old now, in 1955 I went to Kansas City Mo to learn telegraph for the railroad, after class myself and few of the fellows in class ALWAYS went to Katz drug store to look at the pretty girls. Memories and by the way I worked for Seaboard RR 44 Yrs.

High five for the first person account!
