Historic Minnesota

Minnesota Historic Photos Book
Turner Publishing Company mailed me a copy of "Historic Minnesota" to review. I was pleased to have the opportunity to see and read about the Minnesota of my father and grandfather. It was a simpler and a much more rugged time. I have chosen a few of the older photos to feature. These are rare historic photos and many are somewhat rough. I have done some cropping and processing.
