A collection of strange and startling photos from the 1940s and 50s from the archives of the St. Paul Pioneer Press and the St. Paul Dispatch. An evocative look at another time, this is a visual history like no other, a feast for fans of photography and photojournalism, crime buffs, and urban historians--and a testament to the craft of those photographers who documented their era one shot at a time.
Author Bio
John Sandford
John Sandford is the pseudonym of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John Camp.

After serving in the Korean War, John Sandford began his journalism career working in Missouri and Iowa before moving to Florida in 1970. He worked for "The Miami Herald" for eight years before moving again to Minnesota to work for "The Saint Paul Pioneer Press", where he became a popular columnist. In the mid-'80s, during what was then called the "Farm Crisis," Sandford, under his given name John Camp, wrote a five-part series focusing on the hardships of a Minnesota farming family. His reporting won him a Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. Several years later, Sandford published his first novel, "The Fool's Run", followed almost simultaneously by "Rules of Prey", the first novel in his popular Prey series, featuring policeman Lucas Davenport. Often revolving around a disturbing crime or demented criminal, the majority of Sandford's novels are psychological thrillers with tough characters and fast pacing.
