Here Are The Oldest Photos Taken In Minneapolis And They’re Incredible
The city of Minneapolis was officially recognized in 1856 as a town within the territory of Minnesota. After Minnesota became a state in 1858, the city of Minneapolis grew and eventually merged with the town of Saint Anthony in 1872, making our city’s perimeter what it is known as today. With the popularity and accessibility of the camera in the mid to late 1800s, photographers were able to capture some of the most incredible photos of Minneapolis as it was being built. Between the mid-1800s and early 1900s the first photos of Minneapolis were shot and archived to share with the rest of the world and they’re absolutely stunning.
