Historic city photographs, video, reports and documents are now available online at a new Minneapolis Archives Flickr page at

More than 400 images dating back to the 1800s are included in the online collection. The Minneapolis City Clerk’s Office with help from students from the Urban Scholars summer internship program have digitized the images. 

Project organizers are encouraging people to add comments to the photos to help share knowledge about the city’s history.
