Rochester Tornado Local Interest


Scenes of the Ruins of the Tornado in Southern Minnesota.

M. Nowack, the enterprising photographer and stereoscopic artist returned from Rochester and southern Minnesota on Saturday, with a rare collection of plates which he had taken.  They comprise the various scenes along the patch of the recent terrible tornado, showing the ruins of what only a few days ago was a beautiful and prosperous city.  Business houses and happy homes in fifteen fateful minutes were razed to the ground and killed or wounded the inmates.  These views are now being mounted for the stereoscope by Mr. Nowack and offered for sale.  People who have never witnessed a disaster of this character must be interested in Mr. Nowack’s collection, and can purchase them at the photograph gallery at No. 301 South Washington avenue.
