Bridge to Minneapolis

The Stone Arch Bridge is a former railroad bridge crossing the Mississippi River at Saint Anthony Falls in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was originally a railroad bridge but is now a pedestrian/bicycle path. A walk across provides great views of the city, particularly at night.

Slides to Digital – Minneapolis 1980’s Skyline

Working on a project to convert old slides from all over the world to digital images. Due to the age of the slides the conversion is not of high quality, but the subject of the images is quite interesting – especially with the changes in the landscape over passage of time.

Here is the Minneapolis skyline circa 1980 …..

Pillsbury Flour Mill at Night

Situated on the east bank of the Mississippi in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Pillsbury Flour Mill took advantage of the power produced by St. Anthony Falls to produce 17,500 barrels of flour per day. Pillsbury A Mill was added to the list of National Historic Landmarks in 1966. Of the four large flour mills in the city during the peak of Minneapolis’s reign as the milling capital of the country, the Pillsbury A Mill is the only one remaining.
