Opening My Eyes!
My wanderings around the city to find subjects for this blog has not only opened my eyes and made me aware of my surroundings, but it also has awakened in me an interest in St. Paul's history. What a gift this has been! This neon sign is in a building which originally was the Angus Hotel. As a small boy my husband used to go there to get haircuts. It now houses condos, restaurants, a new independent bookstore, and shops of all kinds. Perhaps I'll start another career--Kate, the historian!
Today in MN History: 1905- Minneapolis saloons close their doors for "dry Sunday," and no liquor is available for purchase within the city limits.(Historical information taken from the MN Historical Society's website: mnhs.org)
