In the foreground are Union Station, Burnside Park and the Federal Building Annex and in the background the rolling hills of the east side. This view gives a sense of the separation that existed between Capital Center and the east side prior to redevelopment in the 1980s and 1990s. On the right, the steeple of the First Baptist Church and the green dome of the First Church of Christ, Scientist on the horizon tower above the surrounding domestic buildings of this area of the east side.
