Lost History…

Two sets of 1940s-1950s streetcar tracks with granite pavers as the track floor and mason crafted bricks for the pedestrian sidewalk uncovered from beneath the asphalt on Minnehaha Ave. as the road revamp continues. The streetcar originally ran down past Ghandi Mahal to make a connection with Lake Street. A shame the granite pavers and the bricks are ground up for road bed material. There was incredible workmanship in crafting both of them for the streetcar road and sidewalk!
