Postcard from London Manor Motel

This undated postcard, published by Gallagher’s Studio of Photography, shows the London Manor Motel, one of several lodging businesses that comprised London Road’s old “Motel Row.”

London Manor was built in 1955 and later became the Chalet Motel, which was torn down in 2011. A Sherwin-Williams paint store was built at the location in 2019.

The caption on the back of the card reads:

London Manor Motel
1801 London Road — Hiway 61
Duluth, Minnesota
Beautiful New Motel. Individually Controlled Thermostats. Hot Water Baseboard Heat. Tubs and Showers.
Owners — Mr. & Mrs. Robert E. Johnson
RA 4-0272

A stamp of purple ink appears over Mr. and Mrs. Johnson’s names, however, noting that the new owner of the motel when this card was circulated was Norman S. Johnson.
