View of Minneapolis, Hennepin County, M.N., 1874 / drawn & published by Geo. H. Ellsbury & V. Green.

This panoramic print of Minneapolis, Minnesota was drawn and published by Geo. H. Ellsbury and V. Green in 1874. Late in the 1860's, the expansion of industry surrounding St. Anthony Falls nearly eroded the falls away. A major government funded project to reinforce the falls took years to restore the Mississippi water power source.

Minneapolis boomed at that point as textile mills and industries of all kinds began operations. The improving railroad service adapted to the industrial needs of the community as well as the continued westward flood of travelers.

The constant work on the river was quite a curiosity in 1874.

The illustration, shown from St. Anthony, includes streets, buildings, bridges and railroad route.
