Postcard from the Municipal Zoo at Fairmount Park

This undated postcard, published by Arrowhead Trading Post, shows scenes from the Duluth Zoo and Kingsbury Creek in Fairmount Park. The zoo’s name was changed in the 1980s to Lake Superior Zoo.

The caption on the back reads:

Fairmount Park, a natural park, 71st Ave. W. and Grand Avenue is one of Duluth’s 72 parks. It is the home of the municipal Zoo, one of the country’s finest. Besides the main animal building, there are bear, wolf, fox and coyote dens, seal pond, deer, antelope and buffalo parks, bird havens, and a monkey island. Farther up in the park is a natural open air amphitheater.
