Let There Be Light!

The chandeliers in the Blair Arcade are worth seeing. Today in MN. History-1889-
Northfield illuminates its streets by installing sixty-seven electric lights.

  2. In addition to the chandeliers you have the brick work in the background as well as an archway.

  3. I always love your photos, Kate. This one is especially appealing to me. I don't know if it is the shape of the fixtures or the lighting...but I love it.

  4. I must say, despite our proximity being so close to each other, I find your photo blog to be a learning experience more times often then not. Your last three days are yet another example of something I was not aware of in St Paul.

  7. Kate, I visited St Paul via Google Earth today. I didn't know it was so big! The layout reminds me of Portland with the big river running through the city, lots of bridges to cross the river and islands in the river.

    One bar with a funny name caught my attention... Beer Bellys. heh
