At first I thought that address was Banks Ave., Superior, Wis., but it certainly looks more like what HBH1 has transcribed.

Thanks once again, oh Great Translator or the North!

Thanks, Karasu. I think it is definitely that the man doesn't know how to make a "B" well... or a W. Using postmark clues...

 the address is 5905 Banks Av Sta [Station] B, Superior, Wis
