All three seating mounds
Millers fans leaving Nicollet Park after a game in 1923, where a trolley was waiting. (Click to enlarge.)
Solution for a hot night, just inside Gate 34 (that's a cool mist, by the way, not hot steam, which would be kind of cruel)
Just to the right, more ticket machines. These things are everywhere.
One of the sweetest sights of the day -- the Dome, and only through passing bus windows.
"I've never seen them do that before," said a Metropolitan Club waiter as I snapped this picture.
5:45 PM, section 327, row 9, standing: sunshine.
This is one complicated streetscape.
I believe that the truck is parked in one of the curb cutouts which are being installed to facilitate ticket sales and traffic calming.
Click to enlarge greatly.
August 2001 (a month later we were engaged)
Lots of folks working behind those ticket windows
This is where chain link is being replaced with fencing which matches the plaza
Harmon is visible (barely) at the very center of the crowd.
Glass going in over the Oliva gate.
This is the LRT bridge under construction as viewed from the east looking west. The ballpark facade would be at the left in this photo.
The tower is actually finished, though it looks like a work in progress.
Window area sketched by the limestone
Detail enclosing the main ticket window area
Lower deck view of the out-of-town scoreboard.
The past is the future. Seriously.
Look closely and you'll see limestone on the front of the press box!

The view from my seats in Section 237 (The Trap), Row 1 (can't see much of center field without standing up...)
Detail of Entry Plaza #4 (north entry from Fifth Street)
The entrances are all the way around on the other side.
Our host points to the Puckett Atrium on the diagram.
This is a slightly blurry view of the pavilion in center. It has a quirky shape, but one which is completely consistent with the overall ballpark design. Nice work there. You can also get a glimpse of the greenery which will rise above the fences.
Viewed from the sidewalk on Seventh Street. No skyway infringement needed.
Believe it or not, the actual outfield wall will be about where this fence is now!
One of those funny little sections above the entrance stairs
It's a great view of the action, though standing here is somewhat discouraged.
Mussina's first pitch. (Playing 3rd: Not A-Rod)
