  • This is my first completed creation.  The source image, thanks to the Minnesota Historical Society, is from 1905 showing the east side of Wacouta and 6th Street looking towards the north.   The title refers to what's happening on the right side of the image.  The homes in the 1905 source image reside on Baptist Hill.  The homes, and the hill, were removed and replaced in the mid-1920's by the Finch, Van Slyck and McConville Dry Goods building which you see looming in the future backgroun…
  • The image is looking north into Downtown St. Paul from the Robert Street Bridge.  The source image, thanks to the Minnesota Historical Society, is from 1926.   There are great features of note in this image.   The two men walking the bridge are what attracted me to this image.  They are some sharp dressed guys that could have one of a thousand stories about them.  Are they businessmen, gangsters, politicians?  Where are they headed to accross the river? etc. All the buildings that were on…
  • Tucker Carlson updated the Artwork The Green Loop
    The Green Loop shows the intersection of 4th and Wacouta Streets.  It was taken in front of the main enterance of Union Depot.  The source image, thanks to the Minnesota Historical Society, is from 1926. My personal thoughts on The Green Loop is the lesson of history we continue to repeat.  Tear it up and replace it again. Prints are available up to 40 inches wide
  • Tucker Carlson updated the Artwork Roads?...
    The rights to the source image were thanks to the Minnesota Historical Society. This original creation incorporates a source image from 1926.   The picture shows the road information booth (which I'm sure was extremely useful at the time) that stood on the N/E corner (6th St. & Wacouta St.) of Smith Park (later named Mears).  As you follow the red brick building to the right (Park Square Building) you'll pass by today's restaurants, Barrio and Public, into and through the 1926 image…

  • This image is an original creation using a source photograph courtesy of the Minnesota Historical Society from 1928 of the Minnesota Theatre (later known as the Radio City Theater).  The theatre once dominated the NE corner of LaSalle Ave and 9th St. in downtown Minneapolis. Sadly the MN/Radio City Theatre was significantly razed in 1959 and a parking garage now occupies the space. Also of note in the picture is the W Hotel (Foshay Tower) as it was being constructed in 1928.  If you've eve…
