General Mills, Minneapolis

General Mills Minneapolis

I love this building. “General Mills: Purity Oats Plant Package Foods Operations Division, 1201 Jackson Street N.E.”

N.E. means “Northeast”, that old eastern European part of town. It’s memorialized by plaques on the Central Ave bridge, which intersects with Broadway.

“Polish” plaque, train tracks, and the General Mills plant: Northeast Minneapolis

I’ve heard natives talk about the old days of Northeast with the fondness immigrants use to discuss their homelands.
