This is from inside the B ramp, where an entrance to the plaza will one day be
Branding on the plaza
Discovered on the upper concourse!
A Killebrew tribute covers part of the wall where the entry doors are located near the escalators.
The wooden louvers are in on Fifth Street
We bumped into Jerry Bell (at right)!
Looking through the Oliva gate, you can see the outfield stands.
What are they hanging over there?
The Hennepin Grille appears to feature chicken, brats, and fries.
An escalator was going in the day I was there.
Here's the entrance from the seating bowl.
A collection of support pillars for the left field pavilion.
Spring of 1982 (click to enlarge greatly -- can you pick out Kent Hrbek?)
A closer look at the louvers
Walkway entrance from ramp

Banners on the parking ramp are a great touch. They help manage scale and turn a lemon into lemonade.
