This undated postcard of Downtown Duluth shows off three buildings that were somewhat new at the time of the photo. In the foreground is the Gateway Tower apartment building at 600 W. Superior St., built in 1972. Shown most prominently at left is the Radisson Hotel at 505 W. Superior St., built in 1970. The Ordean Building, at 424 W. Superior St., was built in 1973.
Not yet constructed at the time of this image are the Duluth Public Library, built at 520 W. Superior St. from 1977 to 1980, and the Incline Station Bowling Center, built at 601 W. Superior St. in 1986.
The caption on the back of the postcard reads:
Downtown Duluth, Minnesota
Duluth is the Westerly Terminus of the St. Lawrence Seaway. The Duluth Arena Auditorium, located a few blocks from the downtown area, is the Convention Center of the Northwest. The circular building is the new Radisson Hotel.
