Thanks to The North 40 Tavern for their support. A north woods tavern somewhere in the middle of a big city. They regularly rotate tap beers, so stop in to see what’s currently flowing.
Here’s a look at the intersection of Robert Street and Thompson Avenue in 1958 and 2022.
Robert & Thompson: 1958
There wasn’t much on Robert Street south of Logan before 1960. In this 1958 shot, there’s a gas station on the east side of Robert, and in the distance a farmhouse (likely the William Stassen farmhouse, where Minnesota Governor Harold Stassen was born and raised).
Robert & Thompson: 2022
Today Robert Street is fully developed with businesses on every corner and lining the street. Robert Street has also seen major upgrades since the 1950s when it was a two-lane road (and 1922 when it was first paved).
