One of Minneapolis’ most celebrated communities, Uptown is a distinct group of four vibrant neighborhoods that have long offered a host of cultural treasures to residents and visitors alike. In addition to the entertainment provided by the area's nightspots and lakes, Uptown also has a long history of presenting its residents with a wide range of housing choices, schools, churches and temples, parks, restaurants, and stores. This book uses rare photographs to document and celebrate Uptown’s development from a 19th-century summer retreat and agricultural area into a thriving metropolitan business, entertainment, and residential district.

Mr. Imboden is pursuing a degree in urban studies from the University of Minnesota, and has worked as a volunteer for the Uptown Art Fair for seven years.
