1966: Downtown as seen from Kellogg overpass at McLean. As Wichita expanded to the west and (especially) east, Kellogg Avenue more and more became a major artery through the center of the city. The first overpasses were built mid-century, and today the entirety of Kellogg is in the process of being isolated from traffic -- eventually allowing non-stop travel across Wichita. Many of the buildings in the above left photo have been razed, including the Allis Hotel and the entire industrial complex on the river between Maple and Douglas. The modern picture at right depicts the construction of the WaterWalk; note the crane at far right.
