I found more photos of Edina's sand and gravel businesses. Hedberg and Sons was featured in the last Photo Friday. Today, Glacier Sand and Gravel and Edina Sand and Gravel get a turn.
Glacier was located at 7009 France Avenue South. I don't see an Edina Sand and Gravel in the 1959 phone directory, so I'm not sure where that company was located. I can find out with the property ID number located in the right corner, but I don't have those records at my desk here at home. Anyone know?
As a side note, don't you love the cars in all the 1959 photo records? I'm not a car aficionado, but you would immediately know what decade this photo was taken, even if the date wasn't conveniently printed at the corner.
