Badger Rubber Works was a subsidiary (located in Milwaukee, my home town) of Fisk Tire. Fisk Tire eventually closed down, later revived as a brand-trademark of Discount Tire — the closest one to Duluth appears to be in North Branch. But it’s not the same company.
Fisk Rubber was in Duluth in the years that this ad ran, though, at 749 E. Superior St. The picture below is from the Martin Library archives. I think there is no building at this address, anymore.
