These Topeka videos seem to have been created in the early to mid-sixty’s, and I’ll bet cost the Chamber of commerce and Southwestern Bell paid a small fortune to make these. I found these very entertaining and educational!
This film promotes Topeka, as a prosperous government, business, and cultural center, and encourages viewers to move to Topeka.
The historic Topeka video highlights many aspects of the community including government and public services, business and industry, agriculture, education, hospitals, churches and entertainment. It showcases the Westboro neighborhood; Kansas Avenue; Gage Park; the State Capitol and the legislature; Cyrus Holiday and the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad; Goodyear Tire Co.; Dupont; Forbes Air Force base; Lake Shawnee; Washburn University; the Topeka Public Library; the Kansas History Museum; Topeka and Topeka West high schools; the Veterans Hospital; Karl Menninger and the Menninger Foundation; and the State Hospital among other aspects of the city.
