Minneapolis Industrial Exposition Building

Formerly located at 101 Central Ave Southeast (or as their catalogues would tell you “East End 3rd AVE. BRIDGE”), The Savage Company was the last concern to utilize the 1887 Industrial Exposition Building in its entirety. When the building was purchased for use in bottling Coca-Cola in 1939 the majority of this edifice was torn down, leaving the large tower to stand alone.

The color postcard is postmarked 1904 which would make the view that it depicts to be around the time when M. W. Savage bought the building in 1903. This view is especially dramatic with the foreground dominated by the turbulent majesty of the St. Anthony Falls (though it appears as though some artistic license has been invoked).

The black and white postcard dates from after 1925 when the large, iron signs were installed on the tower. The building had seen many different variations of M. W., and then Erle, Savage’s companies, but this incarnation would be the last. After the Coca-Cola plant was demolished in the 1980s the land became home to residential developments. Both cards reside in the Minneapolis History Collection.

Female and Male Impersonators in Minneapolis

From 1910-1929, a piano store owner named Elmer Brooks collected more than 150 autographed photos of traveling vaudeville performers who visited local theaters. The photos were originally pasted into Brooks’ personal photo albums, but they were disassembled and are now in archival boxes in the Special Collections Department.

Brooks’ collection includes autographs from female and male impersonators who performed well before the public understood words like “drag queen” or “drag king.” Francis Renault (bottom) always performed in extravagant costumes, often left theaters in character for publicity, and was arrested several times for doing so. Julian Eltinge (middle) became so famous that a New York Theater was named after him, and Kathleen Clifford (top) billed herself as “the smartest chap in town.” On stage, she wore a monocle and a top hat, and she briefly performed with a female impersonator named Bothwell Browne.

Like most female and male impersonators from the first third of the 20th century, Clifford, Eltinge, and Renault have become relatively unknown. Thanks to Elmer Brooks, we have some preserved reminders of how beloved those entertainers were, not to mention how much their work continues to influence today’s performers.
