Where in Duluth?
This is probably a gimmie this time of year, but it was so gorgeous I wanted to share it.
Duluth’s Cody Paulson has a new photo blog called Port City Supply, which aims to explore Duluth’s curious aesthetic, which Paulson says “falls somewhere between industry and nature.”
It’s like 50 “Where in Duluth?” posts at once, with some scattered familiar scenery interspersed.
This one seems to have the Where in Duluth? Facebook group stumped. I’ve been kind of stingy with hints, though. I’ll tell you what I told them: 1) It’s outside. 2) It’s farther west than Kemps Dairy in the West End.
Ok … go!
In a twist on our usual game of “Where in Duluth?” we instead ask, in reference to the photo above, who in Minnesota? The image above was shot circa 1970 near what is now Elm Creek Park Reserve, a 4,900-acre park straddling Maple Grove, Champlin and Dayton, near Osseo.
On the right in the photo is Gary Lund, former owner of Gary’s Place, a bar in Carver. These days Gary’s Place is Lisa’s Place, where there will be a benefit for Gary on June 1.
But who is that on the left? He is famous enough that you should know.
I was reading through this list of things Minnesotans are [allegedly] too nice to brag about and I saw this picture, figured it was from Duluth, and it is.
Minnesotans do brag about all of this stuff all the time, but it’s fun to see it on Buzzfeed. Click the pic to see the entire post, several items have a Duluth connection.
