Historical Photographs

Photo Album 1 (1950s to 1970s)

For the past 20 years, the Council has been collecting and posting Minnesota history online at two separate features—With an Eye to the Past (selected images from 1950-2000) and With an Eye to the Future (2000-2018). Historical documents dating back to the 1860s are also posted on the Council's website.

This year the Council has worked with the Minnesota Historical Society to identify historical images that can be posted online.

This is the first in a series of photo albums that will be shared to illustrate progress in attitudes and media coverage. Please note that captions were changed occasionally to use more up-to-date terminology.
