Then & Now: West Broadway and North 3rd St

A pair of street-level images of the same spot in North Minneapolis. The first is courtesy of the Minnesota Historical Society, c. 1953. The second is the same spot taken last year, by erstwhile tumblr’r (and former podcast guest) Paul Merrill. Note the complete removal of pretty much everything. (Also, it’s worth noting that I’m not sure 3rd Street technically exists any more at this spot. Oh well. You can’t make an omelet…)
