Wolvin Building in Duluth, Minn.


The Wolvin Building was constructed as the general offices of the Pittsburgh Steamship Company in 1902. It is shown here as a six-story building, but in 1909 an additional three stories were added. It still stands today as a nine-story building at 227 W. First St., known since the 1970s as the Missabe Building.

This postcard appears to be postmarked Sept. 15, 1911, sent to Miss Emma Templin of Two Rivers, Wis:

Hello kid,

Just arrived at the Canadian Soo. Had two days on Lake Superior from Duluth. Going to Ashtabula, Ohio.

Your friend, Art K
