This edition of Photo Friday has us back in the Grandview area at 5145 Eden Avenue. Wanner Engineering was one of the manufacturing businesses in what is now a mostly retail area of town.
Here's a look at the other side of the building.
According to the phone directory, at least two Wanner families lived in Edina and worked at Wanner Engineering: Kenneth E. (5233 Minnehaha Blvd) and William (5408 Dundee).
The Eden Avenue site, now empty, is now owned by Our Lady of Grace Church and is part of the area being considered for redevelopment in the Grandview District Small Area Plan.
There's a Minnesota Wanner Company at 7125 Ohms Avenue in Edina, and I'm guessing there's a connection, but I'll leave that research until another day. As I always say, this is Photo Friday, not Doctoral Thesis Friday. If you know more about the business, please share your knowledge with us by commenting here or emailing me.
Happy Friday, everyone!
