Fine art illustration of a trolley by Lake Harriet in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The illustration is available in black and white.
Decades ago, one of the true gems of the Twin Cities was the extensive trolley systems. Rails crisscrossed the entire area, taking you from virtually any part of the cities to the other. It even ran to Lake Minnetonka, and there was even a trolley boat that would run you out to one of the islands, where there was an amusement part. But, alas, corrupt officials and ruthless business owners, along with the drive by the population to rid itself of anything old, caused the rumination of the entire network. Only a small section now exists along part of the rails left intact near Lake Harriet.
