About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Re: The old Radisson

The original Radisson was opened in 1909, closed in 1981, and razed in 1982(I watched the demolition.) The new hotel opened in 1987.

The old Radisson

The new Radisson is actually the same old innards with with an 80s façade.

Love that dragon!

Rather a different vibe than the current decorations in that area.

There's still a Radisson

But only Dayton's(now Macy's) remains from the 1910 photo. It's to the left behind the skyways.

Dayton's As Well

Probably the original Dayton's Department Store as well - parent company of Target.
