A collection of strange and startling photos from the 1940s and 50s from the archives of the St. Paul Dispatch. An evocative look at another time, this is a visual history like no other, a feast for fans of photography and photojournalism, crime buffs, and urban historians - and a testament to the craft of those photographers who documented their era one shot at a time.

Fat men's races and fall-out shelters, murder victims and loose women, cheerleaders and immigrants, celebrities and children in distress were just some of the urban curiosities splashed across the pages of city newspapers during the Speed Graphic era (1930s–1950s). Championed by acclaimed news photographers like Arthur Fellig (a.k.a. Weegee), the Speed Graphic camera produced a new visual style that was as blunt, powerful, and immediate as a left hook.Driven by the desire to fill newspaper pages with sensational images, press photographers shot everything, day and night: automobile accidents, fires, murders, all the cop news that fought for a hot spot on the Front Page. And they covered uncounted numbers of social affairs—pictures called "grip-and-grins" in the trade: school events, sports, celebrities, oddities both of nature and humanity.
  • I live in the Twin Cities and work in downtown St Paul. I loved Mr Millet's Then and Now books and Lost Twin Cities. I have only recently showed an interest in the history of St Paul and have done some tours through the history center and have now blew the dust off this book. I did not like it the first time around as some of the photos are graphic and I found myself cringing. Now that I have a more interested mind set I love the book for the additional information to supplement what I have learned about the colorful history of St Paul.

  • I am shocked at how the printed media was more "free" back in the mid 20th century than what it is today in terms of photojournalism. I am shocked and amazed that the papers would allow pictures of dead people on their pages. If that were to happen today, the PC express would start a letter campaign to shut the paper down. Besides that, the rest of the pictures capture the Twin Cities at its best and worst. For example, it peels back the veneer of the sunny times of the 50s to show that reality therein. It is a fascinating book and I hope that Larry Millett does another book in this milieu. Regardless, Millet should be commended for helping preserve our history in the Twin Cities.

  • Do you like photos of dead bodies? If you do then you will love this book.

  • Growing up in St. Paul in the 1950s, this book is a classic. The photography is sensational and the copy humorous and accurate. The book captures the culture and era of the 50s and 60s. I witnessed many of the events pictured in this outstanding volume.

    My brother was a photographer at one of the colleges in St. Paul and he used a Speed Graphic camera. He often followed fire trucks and squad cars around the streets of St. Paul and took equally fascinating photos. He sent me this book as a gift and I have not been able to set it down. The cover photo alone is worth the price of the book.

  • Not just for people from the Twin Cities! I'm a native New Yorker and I really enjoyed it! This coffee-table sized book is filled with some of the best photo reproductions you'll ever see. Insightful, often amusing commentary accompanies the images. A very high-quality publication. Heavyweight semi-glossy paper stock, thick, rigid boards, beautifully bound in thick, attractive cloth. Will last forever. A good addition to any library. Of great interest to anyone interested in documentary photography, American history, urban renewal, sociology, etc.

  • This is an outstanding look at Photo journalism in the 40s, 50s and 60s.There is a story for each of the photos. The book is not so much about the Speed Graphic camera its self but about the era in which the Speed Graphic camera was used from the 1940's to the 1960's at a small town newspaper. The are some amazing crime scene photos that you just dont see in newspapers today.

    The book covers the use of photos and how they where touched up to enhance the photo and therefore enhance the story. All photo's are in black and white.

  • This book was very interesting & informative of the Twin Cities from the 30s-60s. Enjoyed it very much. It is a great conversation piece when company is over and they are looking through this book. Thank you

  • This in an interesting compilation of press photographs from the St. Paul MN area dating mostly from the 1940-50's.

    We have all seen a lot of these images from New York, but not from many other places.

    This is well-worthwhile reading for those interested in the style and content of press photography in past years.
