Someone asked me earlier this week if I ever get tired of taking pictures in downtown St. Paul and my answer was no. This building is on the corner of 6th and Wabasha and I am guessing I could easily take 50 photographs of it and still find something new to like. This nine story building was built in 1888 in the romanesque revival style. It now houses retail and banking.

Wonderful to see, evidence of Spring. I need constant reassurance.
built in 1891
They just don’t build them like this anymore.
1 South Leech Street
Kind of hidden and wedged in between newer buildings this is the oldest surviving commercial building in St. Paul and the first fire station. I have seen pictures of it from the 1880’s and back then it was black and white and the fire department used horses. Is someone seeking a demolition permit to tear this down?
On bates Avenue on the East side of St. Paul. The building was covered with siding. No one ever would have guessed that it is brick.
Minneapolis City Hall
The beautiful Minneapolis City Hall and Hennepin County Courthouse was designed by Long and Kees in 1888, is the main building used by the city of Minneapolis, as well as by Hennepin County, Minnesota. The building is fun to photograph and maybe one day I’ll spend the whole day doing just that.
