Greetings from Lansing, MI
Sorry no date. Note all the awnings up in winter.
What's with the green foliage?
First photo is the intersection of South Seventh Street and Nicollet Avenue.
Dayton's Department Store is on the left and the building still survives. The Dayton Company started Target. Dayton-Hudson changed its name to Target Corporation in 2000 and within a few years divested itself of its department stores.
The building now houses Macy's, but they are going to pull out of downtown Minneapolis and the building will probably be converted to office space.
PS: Two additions to the original building were built in the 1930s and 1950s. (One can be see on the left in the modern photograph.)
About 35 years ago, there was a week-long antique car display in the eighth floor auditorium in the 1950s addition. Cars were provided by local members of the AACA. The display was set up like a drive-in movie theater. My dad displayed his 1927 Hupmobile. We drove the car from the parking ramp right into the building. Lots of fun.
Yeah Gilbert. I suspect it is not a winter scene. No tracks except for what the horses have left. Some one's early attempt of colorizing a b&w photo. The six story building was a big department store and was still there in the fifties when I lived there.
