Day 28, Landmark Center atrium

I photographed the Landmark Center on Day 20. I was back there today for a meeting, and the atrium was all decked out for an event.

It is a beautiful building, full of history, marble columns … and chiffon bunting. It once served as our federal court house, post office, and customs house. Rose Pastor Stokes was tried there in 1918 for antiwar activism. And in 1934, Evelyn “Billie” Frechette was tried there for harboring Johnny Depp John Dillinger.

Read Saint Mudd by Steve Thayer. It’s a great little novel about a St. Paul reporter in the 1930’s … full of gangsters and crooked politicians.
