Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, 1890

This interesting old public domain picture shows Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis as of 1890.  I don’t know the exact location, but I get the idea that it’s looking south.

It can be found in a pamphlet entitled Minneapolis: An Art Study of the City and Its Surroundings published by the Minneapolis Realty Company in 1891.  The little book extols the virtues of the city and explains “good, honest, business-like reasons why parties having surplus capital for investment will find it for their advantage to make such investment” there.

The book is available for free download at Google Books.
