i spent 5 days in kansas and missouri recently and snapped some photos of modern architecture. unfortunately, many of these pics were taken from a speeding car, so i don't know the names or addresses of most.

I do believe that you were very close to my neck of the woods! I believe that is the car wash on Shawnee Mission Parkway near the Ramada and just down the road a ways from me.

I bank at Cap Fed although not in Lawrence. Cap Fed has many cool mid-century locations all ove the state.
