Photo must have been taken in 1911 as Minnesota issued only one plate per car which was displayed on the rear of the vehicle.
I don't see any plates on the fronts of the cars.
I think the second car is a Winton, circa 1912.
Only two buildings the same that I see . . .
Cool pics guys!
21 miles away!
Main street, north side.
Note the two buildings that are apparently still there are the two Brick buildings in the first pic?
Although the building just in front of the rear tall building might be the same building.
It's the brick building closest, then the taller building down the street. In the old picture it has three protrusions on the top. They seem to be gone but, if you "drive" down the street in StreetView, you can see that it is the same building.
Chris, What about the building just to the left of the rear tall building--other than the front Mansard roof facade trim, it looks like it could also be one of the old buildings.
Possible. I hadn't noticed the lower building in the old picture. Here's a closer look.
Well, it's the right height and location. Need a "native" to go check it out! The post office, obviously is much newer. And, of course doesn't fit in to the surrounding architecture!
Great picture. The cool old town looks all gone now.
There is an active campaign in America to destroy everything old and cool.
Get a look at those cars styled to look like turds ! America moving forward !
