Awnings

More canvas on those storefronts than on your average clipper ship.

Telephone lines missing?

I notice poles with large sets of insulators on them, but that do not appear to have wires. I wonder if this is because individual telephone lines have been replaced with some sort of switching system.

[Wireless telegraphy, maybe? Actually the wires are there (below). - Dave]

New Ulm

Properly pronounced 'New Ullum'.

Modern times

Best-illuminated horse droppings this side of Edina.

North Minnesota Street, now.

More or less unchanged!
