Minnesota:
Minneapolis

Minneapolis–Saint Paul (Often called the Twin Cities) is a major metropolitan area built around the Mississippi, Minnesota and St. Croix rivers.
The name Minneapolis was created by combining mni, a Dakota Sioux word for water, and polis, the Greek word for city. Minneapolis was incorporated as a town in 1856 and as a city in 1867.

Our trip took place in July 2001 and included Chicago on the way there and Sault-Ste-Marie on
the way back home. We enjoyed staying several days with friends in Minneapolis and exploring both cities. We also visited with relatives in Minneapolis.

All photos of the lanterns are taken in July 2001. Before placing a photo on the page we tried to check its status with Google Street View. We marked photo caption with (?), if we could not confirm its existence or condition. If there is no note, it means that the lantern exists and has not changed
