Superior Street and its cosmopolitan features

This postcard was mailed 110 years ago today — Aug. 12, 1907. It shows Superior Street in Downtown Duluth looking east from about Sixth Avenue West.

The back of the card offers these notes on Superior Street:

The cosmopolitan features and varied industries of Duluth give its thoroughfares a distinctiveness almost peculiar to the city. Superior Street, especially the view looking eastward and showing the noteworthy Spalding Hotel and the Lyceum Theatre, is a fine type of the more important arteries of this youthful and energetic city.
