Duluth, a Cosmopolitan City

Advertising campaigns for Duluth’s KDAL radio in the trade press were intent on revealing the cosmopolitan dimensions of Duluth. These ads both reveal Duluth’s unique industries and reveal that some of Duluth’s retail, especially, can stand shoulder to shoulder with other major urban areas.

The advertisements in this post were found in the Media History Digital Library.

That's the Duluth I yearn to have lived in. And to see the vigor, confidence and determination within the business community! So dramatically different to everything I knew firsthand.

I remember many of those retailers but unfortunately many were no longer trading to a premium market of size and affluence.
