The Ceremony (VIP in the crowd)
Now from the inside looking at the same area.
Gate 6 is quite large
Hardware in the window! (But why are there three trophies? 1924?)
Storage tracks in the foreground.
Here's the entrance from the seating bowl.
Someone please get those poor people a drink of water. (Gate 34, after the game had started)
A very busy place, as viewed from Target Center.
The plate marker is just to the left.

Two concepts here remain in the final design. First is the oddly-shaped pavilion in center. Second is the section just above the right field fence. In the current design this section will hang over the field by a few feet. The original doesn't do that, but you can see that the concept goes way back in the planning.

Still some work to be done on the canopy.
Looking up Sixth Street, now barricaded for plaza extension.

Speakers spaced evenly among the lights
The Pro Shop.
