This postcard of the Central Motel was mailed Sept. 20, 1956 — 65 years ago today. The address, 24 N. Central Ave., is now greenspace across Main Street from Irving Park. The land is controlled by the idled Duluth paper mill, which was sold by Verso Corporation in May to ST Paper.
The postcard was sent from Grand Rapids, Minn. by someone named Julia. The recipient was Irene Brummond of Eugene, Ore. The message on the back reads:
We are on our way home, but will be some late. Time slipped away so fast. We are having a wonderful time. Will call you when we get home. We are just leaving here.
