Timeline at Latta Parkby The Biscuit Staff on October 23, 2019
You’ve truly never seen the color yellow until you’ve seen this bright behemoth in person. “Timeline,” the sculpture by Robert Winkler, is made from old trolley tracks that were discovered in 2009 during construction on East Blvd. The old trolley tracks used to take people from downtown to the city’s first suburb, Dilworth. Sometime during the 1930s, the tracks were buried and forgotten until they were unearthed decades later. The rail sculpture is named “Timeline” because Winkler wanted to create a piece that would both honor and connect our past and present. Next time you’re in Latta Park at the intersection of Dilworth Rd and Romany Rd keep an eye out for this rainbow of yellow and steel.
