MPR News did a series of stories on John Vachon earlier this year, which was noted at the time on PDD along with a Duluth Milk Company photo. Today we present the rest of the Duluth Milk Company photos and a link to the lot of 61 Duluth images Vachon shot in August of 1941, from the collection of 170,000 photographs from 1935 to 1945 created by the United States Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information.
Since the only long-range Duluth population chart on the Internet seems to be an old one published on Perfect Duluth Day before the 2010 figures were available, here’s a new one.
Here’s a bit of what you’ll find in this week’s PDD Calendar:
The Zinema kicks off their October slate of Jody Kujawa-hosted horror flick offerings with the original Evil Dead, Amber Rose arm candy Machine Gun Kelly plays the DECC, at-large City Council candidates square off, Gaelynn Lea opens her music studio, The Barber of Seville opens in Superior, The Birds come squawking and scratching into Teatro Zuccone and Billy Barnard brings the jazz.
The Bottle Jockeys headline the Red Herring, there’s a corn-maze hootenanny, Oktoberfest is happening on Friday and Saturday, there’s a spooky art opening, Boo at the Zoo is back again and so are the Harbor City Roller Dames.
