Memories and stories

Memory

I remember taking the streetcar to downtown Minneapolis from my grandparents' house in Edina and shopping at the Dayton's store. It seemed really huge and wonderful to a young girl who was living in a town without escalators. We ate in the Sky Room and shopped for clothes. My mother loved looking at the rooms on the furniture floor. Tracey Baker
