Lake Harriet Band Shelter – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Lake Harriet Band Shelter:

The current incarnation of the Lake Harriet Bandshell was constructed in 1986. It stands on the site of previous buildings, some of which were destroyed by fire. The building was designed by the local architectural firm of Bentz Thompson Rietow. The architect was Milo Thompson. The building itself has a 30 foot by 25 foot glass in the back of the building that faces out towards the lake, so as you look into from the front, you can see the lake and any activity on it. The bandshell has a seating capacity of about 900. The bandshell underwent a major refurbishing in 2004. The Park Board itself did not have the funds available, so local businessman Mark McGowan organized groups of volunteers, funded by private donations, to repaint the Bandshell, refectory and sailing pavilion. Working in tandem with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the exterior of the building was painted light brown (it had been blue) and some upgrades to the sound system were done, along with the large glass plate being replaced with a thicker, stronger glass. During the summer months concerts are held in the building with a wide variety of music being represented. The building is now also available to rent to hold wedding ceremonies.

Trolley by Lake Harriet in Minneapolis – Signed Fine Art Print

$19.95$27.95

Information about the Trolley at Lake Harriet Station:

The story of the trolleys of the Twin Cities is a colorful and somewhat sad one. As the city boomed, tracks were laid in virtually all neighborhoods. At it's height, the system was one of the best and extensive in the nation. The trolley system was built in large part by the now defunct Twin City Rapid Transit Company. Here is a map of the network . The trolleys covered much of the city from the eastern suburbs of Saint Paul stretching all the way the western suburbs of Minneapolis. There were some very unique features to the system, including a trolley boat that would cross Lake Minnetonka, and take visitors out to an island in the lake, which at one time had an amusement park. Due to changes in attitudes of the citizens, and the increasing popularity of buses and cars, along with the destructive business practices of Wall Street speculators, trolleys fell out of favor and the system was dismantled. Most of the cars were destroyed and the scrap metal salvaged. There is exists only a small part of the original lines left, riding alongside Lake Harriet in South Minneapolis.
