Postcard from the Incline Railway with View of Minnesota Point

This postcard was mailed from Superior on Sept. 27, 1906 — 115 years ago today — by W. F. McMannis. The recipient was Miss Mabelle Reed of West Dover, Ohio. The image depicts the Duluth Incline Railway, showing the view from the top of the Duluth harbor and waterfront district, and of course Minnesota Point.

The message on the front of the card reads: “Here you are dear! Yes, will be pleased to exchange. Note change of address.”

The main question here: Did Miss Reed ever get together with Mr. McMannis? It appears not. In 1908, she married a draughtsman named Arlington Dingledine in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

Should have kept the Incline.  Ever ridden a funicular?  A blast!
