Victory View, Minneapolis & Robbinsdale, Minnesota

Victory Memorial Drive runs north to south from the bottom left corner of this postcard. Victory Memorial Drive is a landscaped boulevard in north Minneapolis commemorating fallen World War I soldiers from Hennepin County, Minnesota. It was originally dedicated on June 11, 1921. A rededication of Victory Memorial Drive took place on June 11, 2011.

The postcard shows the Victory View subdivision, an area in Robbinsdale just west of the drive and Minneapolis. The area shown with street name labels is between 40th and 43rd Avenues North. The card was mailed December 30, 1924. The back of the postcard has an ad for Victory View by the D. C. Bell Investment Co. (realtors for more than 44 years):
Minneapolis' new and beautiful lake district residential sub-division on the famous Victory Memorial Drive and beautiful Crystal Lake at 40th Ave. No. Free inspection by auto may be arranged by phoning our sub-division department. You are earnestly invited to inspect Victory View today.
