|Gates Bar-B-Q Restaurant [gone]
Belt Alignment & Frame features these towering swirls. They appear to be from the 1960s. [map]
The Gates Bar-B-Q Restaurant chain was founded in 1946. This building was probably from the 1970s. It was destroyed in a fire in 2015. The owners may rebuild on the site. The company has five other locations in the Kansas City area. Two others in Leawood and Kansas City, KS have this same roof design.
|S/S Tax Service
|Falukos Chiropractic & Wellness Center
This S/S Tax Service building must have been part of a chain. I have seen identical buildings in other cities. I've been told that an insurance company built them. Does anyone know what was here originally? The "Executive Center" on the ball might be a clue or it might have been painted on later. [map]
There is another building like these in Tulsa, OK.
|This Post Office is probably from the 1960s. [map]|
|This City Bank branch appears to be from the 1950s or 1960s. [map]|
