Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
Matthew, excellent topic, research and writing. It’s the prospective of ‘why’ that makes your article insightful. Thank you.

I think it’s more likely the pillow case is from the 1960s and not the 1980s. I tend to think of the ’80s as the era of the tourist trinket explosion, but obviously there were many gimmicks going much further back in time, and this one seems like ...
I found the exact same pillow case in my grandma’s stuff, apparently from the early 1930s when they lived in Minneapolis. But you suggest this could be from the 1980s. Maybe someone gave it to her later. Mine only has some strong red tints and a l...
I believe the writer on the show that is from Duluth is Emily Schmidt. We can thank her for the reference and the bumper sticker!
This is what I have.
Ben lived below us in Scott L.’s duplex on Fifth Street for awhile back in the day. He was shy. Eventually, we’d hear him practicing songs, solo, on his acoustic guitar. I don’t remember specific songs. Just the deep heavy sou...
First time I saw Crew Jones I was blown away by his stage presence. A few years later I chatted with him outside Luce and realized it wasn’t just his “act.” And then the Southwire stuff, which was a whole ‘nother thing. True gem.
Thanks. It is a pity that someone didn’t write something on the back of the photo.
I don’t think there’s any official collection; probably just a few scattered around the world in old shoeboxes and whatnot.
I’ve got one more Nye’s cabinet card photo that’ll get posted eventually, but that one clearly is not related to the Andrew...
Does Nye’s studio photos exist in a single collection? Like I was saying, I’m trying to find any photographic record of the Andrews Opera Company.
And sadly, Duluth does even less on Dingus Day!
Sometimes I miss Buffalo……..
You’re diggin’ for fire.
These ladies are buck wild. Sorry I missed the show yesterday. Really getting into the electronic myself these days. Psych Furs first album is stalwart. Killer 80’s Moog Vibes forever.
Yep, that’s a fine photo.
No date on the photo.
Looks like a hot lead, though!
I am researching a group called the Andrews Opera Company, based out of Minnesota. It toured mostly small towns and cities from 1884 to 1901. On Jan. 15, 1892 the company was in a terrible railroad accident 7 miles east of Brainerd at 3:50 a.m. Th...
My mailbox is stamped as being manufactured by Western Steel Products, assuming they stopped operation in 1935 it may be original to our 1915 house. An impressive life for a mailbox.
In consideration of the theory above, I was looking for a way to determine the photo was not from Duluth, even if I couldn’t figure out where it was from. I only see two really distinctive elements in the photo: an unusually wide sidewalk and an u...
Here’s my theory: the owner of the car was using a labeled piece of cardboard or metal that happened to have that company mark on it. Radiators of those types of cars were fragile and could be damaged by rocks, etc.
My great-grandfather (whom I n...
An actual Middle Eastern eatery in Duluth, mind blown.
Bea is a national treasure. Her pulla recipe is a holiday staple in our house.

Interesting. #Jim Harrison. Where can I secure a large undisclosed amount of cocaine hippo flanks?
I thought it was the logo for some Jim Richardson aquatic project. Join the NAVYi.
I think Duluth Area Vocational Technical Institute is the best guess so far. That’s the name of what is now called Lake Superior College.
I have a hard time finding anything in that logo that resembles a T, but I still think it’s likely to be corr...
Or should I say only AVTI and Duluth is the location.
It looks like it contains the letters DAVTI for Vo-Tech as it was referred to at one time. Someone outlined the letters and it occurred that that is what is spelled out.
*Or maybe it’s called an Ambigram? Some sort of word picture.
Piggy backing off the first two comments. All the shapes look like an anagram for YMCA.
Looks like Duluth YMCA?

@Chester Knob: I love to hear it
High or not that’s the Fred I remember. I want to make sure he’s doing alright nothing posted on Facebook for a year or so. Let me know if you know. Thanks!
