To finish out the week today, we have a human interest image dated to September 26, 1947, by the source. In the photo Minneapolis Traffic Patrolman, Ralph Stirratt, appears to be holding a ball while directing traffic at the intersection of Seventh Street and Marquette Avenue. His Harley-Davidson Servi-car is parked next to the traffic light.
At the time the intersection was considered to be one of the busiest spots in the Minneapolis. Today the cityscape has changed, and all of the buildings appear to be replaced by fairly modern structures.
Please share with us what you find of interest in this photograph courtesy of the Hennepin County Library.
