Minneapolis was first settled on the banks of the Mississippi River at St.Anthony Falls. The Falls drew settlers from Fort Snelling, who came upriver to harness the water-power for lumber mills. The settlement that grew on the west bank was "St.Anthony", later joined with the east bank to become Minneapolis.

There was always been a bridge connecting the east and west bank via Nicollet Island, near St.Anthony Falls. The Hennepin Avenue suspension bridge stands there today. The first few streets adjacent to the river on the east bank were called the Gateway district. Between 1880 and urban renewal in the 1950s, they were filled with bars, flop houses, and brothels.

The IDS and metrodome might be recognizable to non-residents, but I don't have close-up pictures of them here. You can see them in the skyline pictures, though. Other buildings pictured here include the Basillica of St.Mary, the Orpheum and State theaters, and the Milwaukee Road depot.
