In the early half of the 20th century Duluth was often promoted as a haven for those who suffer from hay fever. Such is the case with this postcard of a trolley car on Minnesota Point, mailed Aug. 23, 1912 — 110 years ago today.
The text on the front reads:
9119. Minnesota Point “Duluth’s Far Famed Hay Fever and Summer Resort.” A Strip of land seven miles long forming our wonderful harbor, Duluth, Minn.
The names aren’t easy to read on the postcard, but it looks like Mr. H. P. Peterson sent it from Superior to Mr. C. J. Campbell in Butte, Mont. The message is also not easy to decipher, but basically it reads:
Dear Sir, I write to let you know that I have moved back to Superior. I left the key with the lady in the (???) Mrs. Hoyt.
