Postcards from Duluth’s West End … not West Duluth

A recent post on Perfect Duluth Day featured a “Postcard from the West End of Duluth” that was properly captioned by the postcard company. The postcard shown above, however, shows a similar scene and is captioned as “West Duluth, Minn.”

The terms “West End” and “West Duluth” might be interchangeable to those folks who ain’t from around these here parts, but in Duluth we know the area in the image is the West End, and the area farther west is the neighborhood of West Duluth. In the case above, the postcard was published by the Rotograph Company of New York City, and printed in Germany.

Below, another improperly captioned postcard.
