Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
Thank you for the visual!
This is really beautiful. Thank you!
Huh! I’ve seen this many times coming back from Superior. I’ve always wondered what the deal was, but never remembered by the time I got home!
The sloppiness might be due to the station office moving. Sometimes transitions like that aren’t as smooth as people anticipate. Also, I don’t think the Federal Communications Commission has approved the sale yet.
So excited for this next development. It is a perfect fit for the craft district.
Oh fine. This DNT tube is at the Lone Tree campsite on the Superior Hiking Trail on the section between Lismore and Normana roads. I recently hiked the trail from Duluth to Two Harbors, and I have to say I was really impressed with the quality of ...
SPY1, I don’t think that’s right. While this is on a road, vehicle is not how most people would access this spot.
There are some places where I would never venture. I am living vicariously. A creepy video, but so interesting.
Oh, I loved it! I could almost smell the fresh air. Felt like I was there, except I got to wear my bathrobe and drink coffee. Good job! PS: Use your strong legs while you still have ’em.
Stoney póint. Vermilion road.
The Fifth Avenue Hotel was torn down with the rest of Duluth’s “Bowery” in the 1960s as part of the Gateway Urban Renewal Project.
Keep the furniture. Ditch everything else!
Is that this stylish hotel at 2:24? Can anyone tell me what became of the hotel and more importantly, Mr. Kytö, its proprietor?
You could certainly throw a rock from Rice Lake Township and come very close. Here is another image to offer some context.
I’ll say Rice Lake Township to begin the zeroing in process.
I’ll post a few more, and a picture, next week.
I’m not sure I remember this with 100 percent accuracy, but I believe at the wrasslin’ matches Cooter Bocephus was announced as “weighing in at a rooster and a billy goat.”
One interesting thing to observe at the show was how terrified the young...
I just looked up Mr. Magoo again after taking the PDD quiz. Mr. Magoo did in fact get a pardon from President Kennedy and was allowed to keep his “immigrant status” and died a natural death before being stuffed in 1968.
We had the only mongoose in the U.S. by mistake. It was (& maybe still is) illegal to have a mongoose for fear they would reproduce like rabbits and carry disease. Mr. Magoo was a stow-away on a saltie who was given to the zoo. When then director ...
McGregor-Soderstrom was a men’s clothing store. They were in fierce competition with Foreman & Clark. They both went the way of the leisure suit…
1. Pilot House from an ore boat
3. You’ll Like My Mother
4. A mongoose named Mr. Magoo
These were easy (for a native Duluthian of a certain vintage).
We need photos of your miraculous find!!!
This was fantastic.
How’s this for definitive proof? From Mable Nummi’s obituary: “Mable worked many years for Northwestern Bell Telephone Company and maintained a lifelong special friendship with her fellow telephone operators from Duluth.”
The way I found these ...
I live a block from this exchange site, so I looked it up a little further. I think the photo is from 1920, but the building appears in this 1902 city plat. I can’t recognize it from the photo right now, but I’ll walk up there tomorrow and see if ...
Ok, but in fairness, I did say that the view was a bit further over than where the bench was placed. We sat on the bench because it was a convenient place to carry on our conversation. Views or talk, sometimes you can’t get both!
Nice discovery on the Lakeside Exchange. I wondered if there was one, did a quick Google search of “Northwestern Bell Lakeside Duluth” that didn’t seem to help, and then started assuming the ladies worked at the Hemlock Exchange and the location o...
Upper Chester it is, looking over a lake I could not see.
The old Snively Farm near his barns just off Jean Duluth near Martin Road.
One of the reasons I think Facebook would work better is that once a person joins the group that person would get notifications through Facebook that people are looking for rides, increasing the possibility of making a connection.
On PDD there w...
I think PDD would do this very well. I am thinking there are a ton of lurkers that rarely post (like me) and would use a board if it existed. For some reason PDD has a higher level of trust than a random Facebook group. It’s sort of a third party ...
UMD Hartley hill.
Such a fancy little dog!
