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.
