DescriptionOutstanding Bird's Eye View of St. Paul and Vicinity, circa 1890s. Photographed from across the Mississippi, this long-distance shot of St. Paul also offers a peek at life on the other shore - bucolic and slow. The foreground reveals several large farmhouses with numerous outbuildings, while closer to the bridge, a series of small cottages fill one block. This interesting scene was captured by St. Paul landscape and commercial photographer Truman W. Ingersoll. Image measures 9.25" x 6" and is affixed to Ingersoll's slightly larger imprinted mount. Handwritten caption at lower border: "General View of St. Paul from the opposite side of the Mississippi." This is a magnificent image.
Condition: Age toned; faint wear to mount corners. Very fine.
