One may ask why a photo of Rainbow Foods below for the Minneapolis Arena?
Rainbow Foods happens to be located in the original location of the old
"Uptown" area of Minneapolis. The original Minneapolis Arena built in 1924 for
the Minneapolis Millers ice hockey team, with seating for over 5,500 spectators,
was an indoor ice hockey arena that was a spectacle of it's time with artificial
team used the arena as one of their home rinks from the 1920s until 1950 before
campus. The Minneapolis arena was later torn down in late 1966. Upon visiting
the Rainbow Foods on Dupont ave in Uptown one must pay homage to the
hockey teams of old that once took to the ice from the Millers, Bruins, and
Gophers hockey years in the old Minneapolis arena.
