Minnesota yesterday & today
Kennedy, Layne
Adult Nonfiction F607 .K39 2006

Comments  Summary  Author Notes

Summary: This delightful book compares our images of Minnesota today with pictures of Minnesota past.nbsp; In its pages, readers will see the state capitol building transformed from one era to the next, grand old cinemas rising and giving way to the multiplex, the grain-milling district remaking a swath of the Mississippi, farms with barns and windmills making way for mighty wind generators, Duluth shipping and Iron Range ore mining as they were and are, and the state fair and the ice palace over the years.nbsp; Historic images, vintage postcards, brochures, and ephemera, set against photographs by some of the state's best photographers, offer unique visual insight into how Minnesota has changed, and how it remains the same. nbsp;
