Phelps Fountain at Lyndale Park - Infrared

Phelps Fountain at Lyndale Park – Infrared

This is the Phelps Fountain (Turtle Fountain) at the Lyndale Rose Garden shot in glorious infrared. This fountain used to be right in the middle of skid row downtown until 1963 when it was moved to the shore of Lake Harriet. What did it look like then? Check out these pages at the Minnesota Historical Society: 1 2 3 4 5 6 – the flagpole in the last image is still there, that’s all that remains of the park.
