Minnesota: City of Minneapolis Begins Sharing Digitized Historic Images From Minneapolis Archives on Flickr
The City of Minneapolis is making hundreds of historic images and archives available for online viewing – with some pictures dating back to the 1800s.

The page will be updated regularly with new images and archives as the Clerk’s Office continues to assess and digitize its archival holdings.
