Historical Photographs

Photo Album 2

The Council continues to work with the Minnesota Historical Society to identify historical images that can be posted online.

This is the second in a series of photo albums that has been created to illustrate progress in attitudes and media coverage over time. Photo Album 2 contains 60 photos with captions that are presented by decade from the 1900s to the 1990s.

Please note that captions were changed occasionally to use more up-to-date terminology. The Council thanks Jo Erbes for her diligent work in finding all of the images contained in this Photo Album 2; Stephanie Boucher for organizing the Photo Album and making the wording come alive; and to Brian Anderson for creating the online website feature.
