Pen & Ink – 1996
The eastern third of downtown Saint Paul, Minnesota is where the city’s origins lie. Its lower elevation allowed easy access to and from the adjacent Mississippi River. Many of the area’s earliest structures remain. Though the factories and most of the warehouse businesses are gone, residences and offices now occupy the renovated buildings, many of which are on the National Register of Historic Places. The centerpiece in this work is Mears Park, and Galtier Plaza, a beautiful and towering architectural landmark.
