All types of bikes for all types of people at the worker owned bicycle shop at 30th and Minnehaha. They’ve been here for 12 years and have had this great mural for the past several years. The beautiful painting was done by Ben Bayne and Luther Lyons III. www.thehubbikecoop.org

This afternoon, I suddenly realized that, even though I have been taking photographs on Wednesdays all year, I had never made it to the Lake Street Bridge at 5 PM with my camera. Every Wednesday for fifteen years, a varied group of anti-war activists have made it their business to call attention to their cause at five PM at the fringe of our community, between Minneapolis and St Paul. Today, Veterans For Peace were out in force and rang their “peace bells” at each end of the bridge, here, at the Longfellow end.
More info on the 15 year peace vigil held on April 30, 2014 can be found at TC Daily Planet.

I noticed this engraved stone block today for the first time. The short story is that WPA operated a limestone quarry in Minnehaha Park that was used for bridges, retaining walls among other things. This link has a full description and it’s a great read: http://minneapolisparkhistory.com/tag/wpa/
