Minnesotans have always had a love/hate relationship with winter. Here, in historic photographs from the Minnesota Historical Society s collections, are astounding and humorous images that celebrate that relationship. This postcard book conjures thoughts of sub-zero temperatures and arctic conditions exaggerated by Minnesotans who proudly describe their survival skills. They find numerous ways to enjoy the season, from ice fishing at the International Eelpout Festival on Leech Lake to playing outside at St. Paul s Winter Carnival, originally created in 1886 to counteract a New York reporter s description of St. Paul in winter as unfit for human habitation.
This book of thirty postcards contains top-quality reproductions of historic photographs of Minnesotans celebrating winter in all its forms. Bound together in a handy, artful collection, printed on heavy card stock, and perforated for easy removal, these fun and engaging postcards are a delight to the sender and receiver. Just the thing to send to your family and friends in warmer climes.
