Des Moines Register’s X-mas feature

For the most part, I dislike the Des Moines Register, but this daily Christmas feature is a hit. Starting yesterday, each day the Register will feature a photo from their archives. Here are the two photos posted thus far:


From 1935: The date on the back of this photo is Dec. 11, 1935; it shows men unloading Christmas trees among the railroad tracks and warehouses that lined the area south of downtown Des Moines.


From 1987: Downtown Des Moines as it looked in November 1987. The west side of the Financial Center was lit up with a Christmas tree shape while TV ads were filmed to promote the downtown area.
