40 Amazing Pics Show Beautiful Life of the Midwest in the Early 1910s

An amazing collection of antique glass plate negatives was found by William Creswell that shows beautiful life of the Midwest around 1913.
“Most of these supposedly date from around 1913 and originate in the Midwest. I believe they are actually a little older. At least one clue places these images in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area.”
