This exhibit will include cameras and photographs from some of Minnesota’s most prominent photographers, including Jim Brandenburg showing the first digital photograph published in "National Geographic" and his Fuji S1 that took the photo, Wing Huie showing a print from his "Frogtown" series and his Minolta X-700 and Chris Faust showing a Circuit Camera from 1914. Many of the nostalgic advertising, logos and other memorabilia capturing the essence of each decade from the store will be on display. Plus, have your photo taken in front of the Downtown store from the 1950s in a unique photo booth.
