Historic Photo of the Week: Top of the Mall

Featured, Hennepin-Lake, History — By on May 20, 2013 6:10 am

This undated photo is looking at the top of the Mall just to the west of Hennepin Avenue. For many years, the Mall’s roadway connected with Hennepin Avenue. The apartment buildings in the background are still there today but the commercial buildings are today home to the Walker Library (well, the under construction Walker Library today).

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.
