Where in Duluth? PDD 15th Anniversary Challenge #15 of 15

If you’ve followed Perfect Duluth Day for long, you know how to play “Where in Duluth?” A photo from an undisclosed spot is posted, people guess the location in the comments, someone eventually gets it right and everyone else admires that person’s brilliance. But now, as part of PDD’s 15th anniversary celebration, there are prizes on the line.

Duluth’s Duluthiest website celebrates its anniversary on Friday, June 29, at Wade Stadium as the Duluth Huskies face the Thunder Bay Border Cats in Northwoods League baseball. PDD will have a canopy at the game from 6 to 9 p.m. and representatives will be on hand to pass out birthday cake and give away various prizes. There will also be a drawing with 15 names in it for three special prizes — for the “Where in Duluth?” champions.

Here’s how the “Where in Duluth?” challenge works:

  • As opposed to the usual “Where in Duluth?” posts, the contest images will feature the PDD Angry Seagull mascot in the frame.
  • As usual, the first person to guess the correct location in the comments to the post is the winner.
  • Each winner will be entered into a drawing for the three fabulous prizes.
  • The drawing will be held at Wade Stadium the night of the party. Winners need not be present to collect a prize.

Prizes: 

Loll Chair: A charcoal grey Adirondack chair from Loll Designs. Check out more from Loll Designs on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Daypack: A North Bay Daypack with padded laptop sleeve from Frost River. This classic pack is styled in waxed canvas. Check out more from Frost River on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Rafting Adventure: A 4-to-6-person excursion from Minnesota Whitewater Rafting. The winner will receive a certificate good for a 4.4-mile trip on the St. Louis River this summer in a dam-controlled area. Learn more about Minnesota Whitewater Rafting on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Good luck with your “Where in Duluth?” speed and skills. See you at PDDXV!

Standing next to Troy Roger's Robot Rickshaw Mobilization Vehicle (formerly a U-Haul truck).

Paul Lundgren

That's a damn good guess, but incorrect.

My vague answer is a downtown business bldg. garage door...??                  

Thought I was on a roll getting 2 in a row but I've lost my mojo...these last two pics are taxing what's left of my brain...😜

Paul Lundgren

It is not on any business building or garage door. This is a tough one. If you haven't walked past it there is really no way of figuring this one out. But with enough clues I suppose anyone could get it.

I know I’ve seen that one. Driving me nuts that I can’t remember. By CHUM?

Graffiti Graveyard

Paul Lundgren

It's not by CHUM or Graffiti Graveyard.

Somethin2Say

Uhhh...how about graffiti on a train car🤔

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

Graffiti on a train car or shipping container is correct. But the location is needed for a solve.

Somethin2Say

Down by the Depot/Library

Somethin2Say

about 5 months ago

At the far end of the parking ramp on the side of The Depot where overflow parking lot  oversees railroad tracks...??

Somethin2Say

about 5 months ago

Or off Railroad Street where train cars are parked across from empty slip next to Pier B slip

Special K

about 5 months ago

I'm gonna guess it's on the tracks out west by Loll designs, around 59th 7 Waseca

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

Not at the Depot, Pier B or Loll Designs vicinities.

Special K

about 5 months ago

Yeesh, then down at the end of the port terminal at Rices point by the UPS center.  I can't think of anywhere else besides soup town where trains sit still long enough,

Jim Gunderson

about 5 months ago

There's a few rail cars abandoned in front of Pier B.

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

It's not at Rice's Point or Pier B. Think farther west.

Sherburne St. ~ ?

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

Nope, not Sherburne Street.

johnbeargrease

Keene Creek/Grassy Point

Jill Tuura

West of the Goodwill store

Somethin2Say

about 5 months ago

Out behind New Page Corp.

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

All incorrect. The closest two guesses so far, geographically, are Sherburne Street and the tracks near Loll Designs.

Somethin2Say

Behind Jackson Auto 63rd W and Grand  ~ Final Answer! Lol😜

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

Jackson Auto is a little bit farther away than the two best guesses so far. "Go west, young man, go west."

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

Keep looking west ... and of course, like most Duluthians, when I say "west" I mean "southwest."

Jill Tuura

Near Munger Landing

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

That is the closest guess so far! But not quite close enough.

Jim Gunderson

about 5 months ago

Near Boy Scout landing?

Somethin2Say

about 5 months ago

Spring Street...(closet named stree)t...seems to be near a boat storage area lot...say 'Yes' please !Lol😛

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

Not Boy Scout Landing.

It's not on Spring Street, but Somethin2say is red hot with that guess.

Somethin2Say

Western Waterfront trail?

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

It's not on the Western Waterfront Trail ... at least not what is officially considered the Western Waterfront Trail at this time in history.

Jim Gunderson

about 5 months ago

Tate and Lyle is all I can find it called on the map. It used to be where they made citric acid for Tang.

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

Keep going southwest, Jim.

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

DWP Trail is incorrect.

Special K

about 5 months ago

Enhance.  Enhance.  Enhance.  There appears to be some cars sitting on the tracks at the end of Lenroot Street off a trail through the woods.

Somethin2Say

about 5 months ago

Those are the same ones I saw with Spring St. to the other end with the boat storage lot across from the train car I thought was of the pic

Paul Lundgren

about 5 months ago

Special K edged out Somethin2say with a slightly better description. The subject of our photo is just off the Lake Superior and Mississippi Railroad tracks, near Spirit Lake Marina, closer to Lenroot Street than Spring Street.

As your on-the-spot reporter I can show what the scene looks like this morning.



So congrats, Special K, you got #15 and closed out our "Where in Duluth?" competition. The drawing for prizes will be tonight at Wade.

Congrats! Thanx for ending the crazy madness Special K! I can finally get my life back...Lol! And Thanx Paul (and Perfectduluthday)for all the maddening fun. I need to pay better attention to my surroundings! 😎

Somethin2Say

Wish I could be at the festivities tonight to continue the fun craziness but have previous engagement...have a fun & memorable time to all who attend. Enjoy!

Jill Tuura
