Minneapolis' Fluorescent Streetlights
00000019.JPG I rented a book at the library called "Downtown Minneapolis in the 1970's." Low-and-behold, I discovered that out all of all the research I have done, Minneapolis must've been fitted with one of the most fluorescent streetlights in greater America. At least, that is the way it seems. Mike Evangelist has captured these majestic contraptions in ways I have not seen them before. If only I could've seen those General Electric's dot the roads in my time. I feel it is only my duty as a new member, to immediately contribute usefully to the archive. Not all of the photographs are Evangelist's. 13 files, last one added on Sep 17, 2018
