Indirectly, this book also raises some natural questions about our country's urban development. The demise of the Twin Cities' streetcar system is particularly well described, for example. I could see a creative professor, teaching a lower level course on urban development, assigning this book as a text. (The same professor would also have students view "Chinatown.")
The book was also adapted for television by the local (Minneapolis and Saint Paul) public station. The program is quite entertaining, and catches the tone of the book pretty well.
Larry Millet has written a few Sherlock Holmes mysteries, largely as an excuse to present much of this same historical information in a livelier way. If you're considering which approach to take, stick to this. The mysteries are awful, extremely flat-footed and despiriting for an Arthur Conan Doyle fan; this is a wonderful book.

A really fun book. Outstanding photos. Made me want to go out and see what is there now!! We've lost too many true treasures.
Larry is a great story-teller and fact-finder.
This is a fascinating, though often sad, look at Twin Cities architectural history. I loved it!Published on December 5, 2005 by Brian J. De Young
