Bruer Brothers Lumber was located along the north side of today’s Midtown Greenway trench (formerly the Milwaukee Road 29th Street railroad trench) between Aldrich Avenue and Garfield Avenue. The section between Lyndale Avenue and Garfield Avenue was primarily a storage yard while the section between Lyndale Avenue and Aldrich Avenue had their mill, shipping, receiving, sales office, additional yard space, etc.
This photo, likely taken between fall 1914 to spring 1915, is taken looking northeast at the storage yard between Lyndale Avenue and Garfield Avenue in Lyn-Lake.
This photo was taken in 2006 of the same property.
