Land buyers visit Satanta, Haskell County, Kansas

Steele, F. M. (Francis Marion), 1866-1936

This is a view of James Septer Patrick's business building (Jas. S. Patrick Agent for Satanta Lots And Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Lands) in Satanta, Kansas. There is a modified Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe logo on the front of Patrick's building. Some railroads received lands from the federal government. They sold the lands to help raise funds to build the railroad. Also visible in the photograph are the Deal building and a water tower, both under construction, and people seated in four automobiles. The first two cars contain land buyers from Wichita, Kansas (only John Jacob Miller, seated next to the driver in the first car, is identified ), the third car contains Mr. and Mrs. John Henry Johnson from Sublette, Kansas, and James Septer Patrick is alone in the fourth car. Note the steering wheels are on the right side of the cars.

Views of North Topeka, Kansas

These fifty-two glass plate negatives were found in a house at 1510 NW Tyler, Topeka, Kansas, and were subsequently donated to the Kansas Historical Society. The early snap shots show young people in North Topeka "horsing around" with a camera and capturing photos of themselves, family members, houses, flooding, boats and guns, bicycles, farm animals, horses and wagons, and a trolley. The photographs and the photographer are unidentified. These photos are a good example of early vernacular photography made possible by George Eastman's invention of the Kodak camera in the late 1880s.
