Skyline: The Pride of Every Duluthian

The recent post “Lost Dog at Lakeside Super One,” which reunited Jessica with her sweet and crazy dog Marley, ended up spinning off into a discussion about the Lakeside neighborhood and it’s history/boundaries/etc.

While pondering that, PDD’s Fairy Research Spy unearthed this June 30, 1907 Duluth News Tribune article about the ongoing development of Skyline Parkway. (Of course, it wasn’t called “Skyline” until 1929.)

Very interesting.  I love this local history!

And they don't write like that anymore do they?  And it is quite amazing how all but two paragraphs consist of one-sentence only paragraphs.  Run on, baby, run on and free!

I'm sure the film "Snively's Road," available at the public library, has been discussed around here. It's worth watching.
