Say goodbye to your afternoon

Simple, addictive, frustrating, full of useless exhileration - perfect time-waster. Have fun.
THEN AND NOW A find from the postcard collector’s show. Can you identify this Minneapolis street? It’s rather difficult, since everything you see is gone.
I'm pretty sure it's now . . . this.
The building in the distance is the old Post Office. The next one from the left, the Onieda. The "Minnesota Loan & Trust" was the Bank of Commerce.
Time was not kind to the street, was it.
Busy day; more later.
