IDS Center

IDS Center (and some other building I don't know the name of) at night
3 cheers for my new(er) camera. The photo is still a bit grainy/blurry but it's loads better than what my old camera could have done.

That's the Foshay Tower; it was the first sky scraper in the downtown skyline.

There's a comic in the Foshay's museum that calls the IDS Center "The box the Foshay came in."

John Phillips Sousa wrote a march for the ribbon cutting on the Foshay's opening day.

And if you don't know who he is... well, that's what Google is for, right?

Err, well, no. I'm referring to the building right in front of the IDS. The beige and brown one. The Foshay is near 9th & Marquette.
