Postcard from the Entrance to the Duluth-Superior Harbor

This postcard of the Aerial Bridge, circa 1915-1925, notes its span is “393 feet 9 inches, 135 feet high from water line” and its construction cost was $100,000. The image shows a ferry car being transferred across the canal. The bridge’s era as a transfer bridge ran from March 27, 1905 to July 1, 1929.

The image below is a different postcard, published by Bloom Brothers Company, that bears virtually the same image.

That is an amazing postcard. I once saw something like that on public access. Later, I wished I took a picture. I hoped I'd see it again. 

Thanks, Paul
