February 4, 2020 - March 31, 2020 @ Fitchburg Senior Center
Since statehood, beer has played an integral role in the growth of Wisconsin industry, while bringing Milwaukee national fame. What might be less obvious, but no less important, was the profound role that rail transportation played in this story. To shine a light on both, the Center for Railroad Photography & Art curated the touring exhibition Milwaukee’s Beer Line, which narrates the rise, fall, and rise again of Milwaukee’s beer industry through the eyes of the Milwaukee Road’s Beer Line.
Photographs from the show come from the Center’s Wallace W. Abbey Collection. During the 1950s, Abbey was an associate editor for Trains magazine, the nation’s foremost railroad magazine. With offices located in downtown Milwaukee, the Beer Line became a natural subject of interest.
View the gallery at the Senior Center starting February 4 through March. The Senior Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
