Theme Day: Books

November 1st, Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community. This month's theme is 'Books'. How fitting of a theme, since a personal favorite book of mine has been my inspiration for the Twin Cities daily photo. The book, published in 2001, is titled 'Minneapolis-St Paul, Then And Now'. The cities Minneapolis and St Paul IS the 'Twin Cities' this blog is named after.

Stop by the other cities participating in the November Theme Day via the links below this photo. Do remember that there are timezone differences between the other cities. Or you can head over to the Click here to view thumbnails for all participants that have posted their 'books' photo.

Perfect to illustrate your blog and a beautiful photograph of the book too.

Interesting. Then and Now. I like books like that. Am doing something similar on my Gordon, Ohio blog.

I also forgot it was theme day so I just found some of the books I wrote and showed a picture of them.

Nice! I think every city should have such a photo book.

It's been in the back of my mind to create a book like this in the future using the photos from this blog.

What a great choice for theme day. I love to see how cities and places have changed over the years, sometimes for the better, sometimes not.

I came extremely close to buying this book about a month ago. It interests me quite a bit how our city looked 50 years ago and then now, you know?
