Duluthian - Symphony Boat Company - 2016

Shortly after the PDD story went up, the May/June issue of Duluthian came out. Kind of a mirror image!

Comment on Images of Saturday’s amazing storm cloud over Duluth by Herzog

That storm was all bark and no bite. The BBC ran a story called the ‘Air Smelt of War’ which along with this photo reminded me of the Flying Smelt of Duluth.

Comment on Selective Focus: Tim Kaiser by TimK

That cetainly could’ve been a siren. I once played a bar in Louisville. Half way through the set, I looked up (I can get pretty focused while performing) and what once had been a full room was now empty. Apparently there was a shooting incident on...

Comment on What is the dawn chorus of birds? by huitz

Thanks to you also. Man those guys are loud sometimes, especially when they’re all trying their best to have the loudest voice. And, then all of the sudden, there’s silence.

Comment on Selective Focus: Tim Kaiser by Herzog

Pretty amazing TK. There appears to be a police siren that comes in at 7:56 on Hive 13… life imitating art?

Comment on What is the dawn chorus of birds? by Bret

American Robin. One of the most beautiful bird songs there is! It’s their nesting song, used to maintain territory around their nests. Generally you’ll hear it from May to July in Duluth.

Okay, I feel like an idiot. I should have known that. They are very persistent.

The spruce tree has grown a bit.

That last pic was shot by Mike Guello. I sent that in with the wrong attribution, and I apologize to Mike.

Comment on Where (and when) in Duluth? by Rij

Based on the melted snow and bare trees, I’m guessing this photo was taken in the spring. Written in pencil on the back is “age 13”. My Mom was born in February, 1935.

Comment on Where (and when) in Duluth? by Michelle Rowley

RIJ, once you said the building and chimney were still there, I thought I knew where it was. And maybe I’m wrong but it was the steeple behind the buildings. Looks like St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. But I stared at today’s imagine on google for a ...

Comment on Where (and when) in Duluth? by Paul Lundgren

I was also going to guess 1952. I’ll say 1951 instead.

Comment on Funding Sources for Low Income Families in Duluth by David Beard

The timetable is so short, but I wonder whether a phone call to the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation would give you any leads on donors who might be interested in supporting the work, off the usual schedule.

Otherwise, I wonder whether a ...

Michelle, you are correct. Care to venture a guess as to the year the original photo was taken?

The building, houses and chimney are still there.

Comment on Where (and when) in Duluth? by Michelle Rowley

But the apartment building is not, correct?

Comment on Where (and when) in Duluth? by Rij

Bonus points for anyone who can estimate what year the photo was taken.

Comment on Coffee Communication by Michelle Rowley

Shared it on our coffee shop Facebook page.

Comment on Where (and when) in Duluth? by Rij

The background is virtually unchanged. The retaining wall behind the kid on the scooter is still there.

Comment on Where (and when) in Duluth? by Paul Lundgren

This is kind of killing me. I already have two guesses that Google Maps has proven me wrong on.

Comment on Coffee Communication by Michelle Rowley

Ha! I’m sharing this on my Facebook. Began Barista work back in the ’90s, at the original Lakeview Coffee in Fitger’s, and continued to do so off and on while cultivating my marketing communications and fundraising career. Last week, I quit the ca...

Comment on Down Town by Michelle Rowley

Although I’m an irregular reader of the Saturday Essays, so far, this is a favorite!
