Photos Before Freeways

Postby Sacrelicio » December 4th, 2015, 10:08 am

Anyone have or know of any photos of neighborhoods/streets/blocks before they were torn down for freeways? Looking for street level shots of Minneapolis, but St. Paul or inner suburbs would be good too.

There are a lot of old photos available online from the Minnesota Historical Society: http://search.mnhs.org/index.php?brand=cms

Also from the Hennepin County Library: https://apps.hclib.org/collections/mplsphotos/

You might also try the Placeography wiki: http://www.placeography.org/index.php/Main_Page
