Paul M. Osterlund of Superior died this past May at the age of 68, leaving his son Matt a collection of photos shot around Duluth and Superior during the mid-20th Century. Most of them were taken by Paul’s father, Hartley Osterlund, who was a photographer for Superior Senior High School, UW-Superior and the Superior Telegram.
Matt has supplied Perfect Duluth Day with a treasury of the images, which we’re sharing in a series titled “Photos from the Osterlund Collection.” Part one focuses on images from the 1950s. Most of the scenes are of recognizable locations. Two footnotes to remove some potential confusion: The shot of ore docks was taken in Two Harbors and the final image is of the Foshay Tower in Minneapolis.
