Lately, Wes has been doing a lot of research on the history of Minneapolis, specifically on the stories behind some of our favorite buildings - such as First Avenue - and our city's features which are no longer around - such as the city's rapid transit railroad system.
Here's a nostalgic miniprint based on a 1914 Twin Cities streetcar map, showing the tracks which ran from St. Louis Park up into Columbia Heights and New Brighton and all the way over past the Burlesque studio into the far reaches of Saint Paul. Wes added some cool subtle nuances and warm splashes of color to reanimate the original map and make this piece look sharp in your home.
