These 34 Photos Of Minneapolis In The 1930s Are Mesmerizing
We’re all looking forward to a fresh start in the new year, but it’s always fun to look back a few decades to reflect on how far we’ve come. These 34 photos of Minneapolis from the 1930s show off a whole different world from the one we know (and love) today, and they paint an amazing picture of what life was like more than 80 years ago!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
We’re certainly excited for 2017 and the experiences to come – 2016 was a tough year for all – but looking back to decades past reminds us the strength of our lovely city and gives us confidence that we will make it through whatever this new year throws our way!
