At one time for sale on Amazon, but now marked “currently unavailable,” is this photo labeled “Reading Room, Duluth Public Library, 1890-1930, Minnesota, MN, Chairs, People, Books.”
The summary reads: “Interior view of reading room showing many patrons seated at tables.”
So the question is: Which Duluth Public Library reading room is this?
The Duluth Library Foundation’s website outlines the various library locations throughout history. Was our mystery photo shot at the Young Men’s Literary and Library Association reading room at 106 W. Superior St. circa the 1870s? The second floor of the Grand Opera House at 333 W. Superior St. circa the 1880s? The second floor reading room at the Masonic Temple circa the 1890s? Or the Duluth Carnegie Library circa the early 1900s?
