Postcard from Minnesota Point Lighthouse - Perfect Duluth Day

Postcard from Minnesota Point Lighthouse

This postcard was mailed 110 years ago today — Nov. 7, 1912. A previous Perfect Duluth Day post featured a different version of the same card, mailed four months earlier. That post includes additional background info on the lighthouse.

Also previously noted on PDD, the remains of the lighthouse have remained in roughly the same condition for more than a century.

It’s difficult to make out the name of the recipient of this postcard or the initials of the sender, but it’s clear the card was mailed from Duluth to Owatonna.

The written message on the back reads:

Duluth, Minn.
Nov. 7th
Dear Solt [?]
Got to Duluth all OK. Go out in the morning.
