Historic Photo of the Week: 2323 Lyndale

This photo comes from the City of Minneapolis and was not digitized well due to lack of resources on my part. That said, I’ve manipulated it to the point where it communicates what it needs to.

We are looking at 2323 Lyndale Avenue South in the Wedge in February 1944. I believe the gas station was on the NE corner of 24th Street but this has not been confirmed.

How cities work and change, how they are the product of their inhabitants and outside forces, and the resulting livability keep me thinking and dreaming about the future. I work in transit oriented development and have a background in urban real estate development. I am Past President of an Uptown business organization, grew up in Uptown, was on an Uptown neighborhood association Board, and am an Uptown and Lyn-Lake historian.

    Thatcher, I am reasonably certain that the NE corner of 24th/Lyndale is accurate based on 1975 movie footage I shot showing a shuttered Phillips station at that location.

    Agreed, NE corner of 24th and Lyndale. The building in the background is still standing, and has been recently renovated in an unsuccessful attempt to convert it to condos and retail.
