Explore the history of Minnesota department stories in this new photography exhibit, a companion to the new MNHS Press book "Thank You for Shopping: The Golden Age of Minnesota Department Stores" by Kristal Leebrick.
Throughout the 20th century, department stores ruled the retail landscapes of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. More than just shopping centers, stores like Dayton's, Powers, Donaldson's, Young-Quinlan, the Emporium, and the Golden Rule were centers of social life. The exhibit features framed photographs and a slideshow, including many unpublished photos.
The book is abundantly illustrated with vintage photos, postcards, advertisements, and artwork that explores the experience of shoppers and employees alike. The book will be available in the Mill City Museum store.
The exhibit is located in the museum's central Mill Commons and is free and open to the public during regular museum hours, Nov 15, 2018-Feb 24, 2019.
