The last remaining building, recently torn down, used as a bus barn, was built in 1906 as an erecting shop for the Twin Cities Rapid Transit Company, which operated the streetcar system. The area now taken up by Midway Shopping Center was also occupied by the yards and buildings of the company. Streetcar workers had explosive strikes in 1889, 1917 and 1934 before establishing a stable, long-lasting union in the industry.
