Duluth City Blocks Puzzles

Apparently a person or entity named P.J. Kossett obtained a copyright in 1978 for the purpose of manufacturing “City Blocks,” a collection of “six puzzles of Duluth scenes.” Shown above is the Duluth Depot, aka St. Louis County Heritage and Arts Center. Also featured in the puzzles: Leif Erikson Park, Ore boat entering harbor, Canal Park, Enger Tower and Spirit Mt. Ski Chalet.

One of the wonders of operating Perfect Duluth Day is occasionally receiving weird emails from weird sources. Someone who goes by the name “Mean Larry” sent these images with the following note:

I ran across this looking for something else. I don’t know if this has been posted to PDD before. I have no idea how or why we have this or what if any promotion it was attached to.

Below are two more images from an old eBay listing, which seems to be the only online reference to this product:
