Sorting Through the Old Stuff

About a year ago a friend of mine handed me a bundle of ephemera he'd come across randomly. I of course love old paper crap so, it was an amazing gift. I put it aside on my shelf and hadn't really filed through it til the other day when I was packing in preparation for my move. I found some great images of historical Minneapolis.One thing I noticed immediately was the angle the skyline of Minneapolis was drawn from. I have not seen very many photos or illustrations of the skyline drawn from this angle.

These images are from the 1967 Fairview Hospitals Annual Report

This letter from what is now the Star Tribune was also in the bundle.
