Thanks for the updates - very atmospheric. Very workaday, but with a cool urban edge.

It is also interesting to see images of residential neighbourhoods.

Thanks Jane. I think the residential neighborhoods are a big part of what makes Minneapolis a good place to live. Nearly all of Minneapolis and St Paul proper is streetcar suburbia. The trees and yards hide the fact that many of the denser parts of Minneapolis' streetcar suburbia have similar density as row house (terrace) neighborhoods in other cities because of the large number of apartment buildings and duplexes. It gives you the best of both worlds - enough density for walkable neighborhoods and decent transit while feeling like you are surrounded by nature and greenery. Most American cities outside the east coast that were built in the streetcar era are full of areas like that. It is unfortunate that we moved away from that development style after WWII. Anyway, some more photos:

The second picture down on post 29 is quite something. What is it?

It is ING Bank's Minneapolis office. It was designed by Minoru Yamasaki who is the same architect who did the World Trade Center. It has always reminded me of a midcentury modernist take on a Greek temple. It is probably my favorite local building of that era.
