Love this! When I was growing up in Minneapolis, the Foshay was the tallest building. Things have changed! An acrobat executes a headstand on the roof edge of a skyscraper in downtown Minneapolis. The Foshay Tower looms behind the acrobat; Marquette Avenue recedes into the distance to his right.

Birds-eye View of the Foshay Tower, Minneapolis, 1973 (by Peter Stratmoen) The Foshay had reigned as Minneapoliss tallest building for more than four decades by the time the new IDS Center went up in the early 1970s. From this vantage, near the top of the IDS, the Foshay suddenly looked almost puny. Photo via Old Minneapolis
