Minneapolis, Minnesota

The Crystal Court I.D.S Building

October, 1981


This is a picture of the place in downtown Minneapolis where everyone meets. Often there is an orchestra or bank concert – sometimes even the Minn. Symphony. It is always warm and cheery – even in midwinter!

I have just walked around the lake (2 hrs) and now must get supper for the family. Wish you were here.


(aside) If you ever watched the Mary Tyler Moore Show, this is where she throws her hat in the are at the beginning. There is now a statue of her outside this building.

This tower is linked to other structures of the Center and the skyway system of pedestrian bridges. The Court soars 120 feet to the 80th story.
