Minneapolis Past

Below is a list of broadcasts scheduled to air in the next 60 days on any of our three channels.

Airs Wednesday August 5th
This colorful tpt production celebrates the days when the Foshay Tower was the tallest building in town; when visitors viewed the bizarre attractions of Wonderland Amusement Park on East Lake Street; when St Anthony Falls was rough and unharnessed, with enough raw energy to create the greatest milling district in history; and when eagles soared above now-vanished Spirit Island, looking for stunned fish that had the misfortune to go over the falls. The history of Minneapolis is told through photographs, archival film, newspaper clippings and personal recollections. Highlights include the tale of two strikes in the Minneapolis warehouse district in the 1930's-one well-known (the 1934 truckers strike), the other (by women knitters at the Strutwear Company) now forgotten; a profile of African- American families along Snelling Avenue who owned their homes, ran businesses and stuck together through the Great Depression-and who still live in the neighborhood; and the dark story of anti-Semitism on the city's near north side-and a young mayor named Hubert Humphrey who crusaded for civil rights.
