Twin Cities: Then and Now is an engaging, startling, and at times heartbreaking look at the dramatic evolution of landscapes in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Larry Millett, author of Lost Twin Cities, explores the changing appearances of Minneapolis and St. Paul from the vantage point of their relatively static streets. Seventy-two historic photographs taken from the 1880s to the late 1950s, are paired with Jerry Mathiason's elegant new black-and-white photographs to provide superb visual comparisons between then and now. Millett's lively and informative essays examine the often astonishing changes wrought by time and circumstance. Maps and detailed informational graphics provide orientation and identify hundreds of significant buildings and places in the photographs.

Saint Paul, the capital of Minnesota since 1849, and its twin city Minneapolis, a few miles to the west, have enjoyed a special relationship since their early days. Fittingly for a city that has 18 of Minnesota's 12,034 lakes within its limits, Minneapolis derives its name from the Dakota word for water (minne) together with the Greek word for city. The original purpose of the city was to process Minnesota's grain, harnessing the St. Anthony Falls to power the mills. Saint Paul was pivotal to the trade in lumber and fur and is notable for its beautifully designed cathedral, its American Indian heritage, and its picturesque boulevards and squares. Today, both cities are prosperous and vibrant, loaded with history, culture, and great architecture, and surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in America.

Locked together in an affectionate sibling rivalry, Minneapolis and its twin city St. Paul are constantly growing and changing. The long and cold Minnesota winters and humid summers have spawned an architecture to beat the weather with indoor shopping malls, domed stadiums, skyways, and a whole host of sports and celebrations that thrive in this climate. Local author Bill Lindeke shows how the Twin Cities have developed from simple trading posts on the banks of the Mississippi in "the land of 10,000 lakes." Sites include: Forum Cafeteria, Lumber Exchange Building, Foshay Tower, City Hall, Pillsbury 'A' Mill, Milwaukee Depot, Metropolitan Building, Huber H. Humphye Metrodome, Triangle Bar, Loring Park, Basilica of St. Mary, University of Minnesota, Northrup Auditorium, Swedish Institute, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Hennepin and Lake, Lake Calhoun, Lake Harriet, Minnehaha Falls, Fort Snelling, Seven Corners, Landmark Center, Mickey's Diner, First State Capitol Building, Third State Capitol, Science Museum, St. Paul Union Depot, and Castle Royal.
