In newly donated photographs, Paisley Park remains frozen in time

Here is an article about photos at Paisley Park that have very recently been donated by Dr. Ginnie Love to the Carver County Historical Society. The photos are from the summer of 2004 through mid-2006. Such a generous donation. The article is a nice read.

NPGMC was a special place. (InfiniteHeaven was the name I used in there.) Loved reading what Ginnie said. She's a great lady.

Cool - lot of right click save there.

.

Still some parts of it look run down and cluttered, lots of boxy 1980s electrical equipment there.

Also the murals look really early/mid 1990s along with the mid 1990s "Zamboanga" sty;e fuirniture. The place badly needed a make over.

.

Had I had I would have made it over at least every 5 years. I loved the Purple POOL table and the see through balls with Prince symbols though, and are glad he kept up his love affair with purple in that place.

When I saw the Graffiti Bridge-inspired wall, I thought it was pretty cool that I recognized it after having watched a video of a Paisley Park tour that Ingrid Chavez hosted.

There's more of a story behind that wall. I had recently made a thread about it on here, and there's more information on the names etc on it here: http://prince.org/msg/7/427044

Makes me wish they kept the place untouched instead of painting it over with an extravegant museum. It looks like he changed the place up (or at least certain rooms) to match his latest major projects.

It's by the front door, to the left, one of those tall ones outside businesses. Which is why there was one there - it's a business, and people there might smoke. Hell, it's better than cig butts all over the grounds.

I kind of figured that was the reason.
