Minneapolis & Vicinity

Although I usually try to travel back to my hometown of Minneapolis twice a year, it's been 18 months since I last was there. Obviously a lot has changed due to COVID-19 and the killing of George Floyd. Here's collection of photos I took back in 2019:

Built in 1956, Southdale Center was the first enclosed regional mall built in the country.

Minneapolis always exceeds expectations. At least in photos. I've never been there in person.

That is one of my favorite buildings from the era, one of the few that rises to the level of a masterpiece.

Can't thank you enough for those uploads, from someone who lived there from 1972 to 1993.
