Mary Richards - Mary Tyler Moore

When I was a young girl I loved watching the Mary Tyler Moore Show every Saturday night.  I can't think of another actress besides Mary Tyler Moore who could have played the role of Mary Richards better than she did.  One of the things I loved about the show was Mary Richard's studio apartment on the third floor of a Queen Anne Victorian house in Minneapolis.  The floor to ceiling length Palladium windows was the focal point, but the apartment had other wonderful old world features.   Years later in the show Mary moved to a one bedroom apartment, but it was no where near as charming and warm as the studio apartment she started out in.

I was excited to come across a blog that has a page about the Queen Anne Victorian house that the MTM show used for exterior shots.  You will be able to see what the house looked like back then and what it looks like now.
