Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
McCuen’s hair is so…triangular!
Meanwhile… outside the idyllic sanctuary of PDD, the world experienced a Category 11 Shitnami as Hurricane Orangey made landfall yesterday in the year of our lord January 20 2017- kickstarting the zombie apocalypse while demonstrating how America...
Wow, you really captured Emily’s energy!
We need a mayor who will hire Brian Barber for one of his signature portraits!
Doh! Time travelin’ politicians. Thanks for the heads up -- fixed it.
Entries 15, 16 and 17 have the wrong years listed (off by a century, it appears).
1) The first 19 mayors pictured sport facial hair.
2) The last 13 do not.
3) The cloud of green vapor emanating from Mayor Boo’s pipe is intriguing.
Here’s a Crystal Terrace matchbook from the Duluth Matchbook Collection post. Apparently it was located at 508 W. Superior St.
What are old Duluth matchbooks worth? Almost nothing. There is someone out there somewhere who would pay a couple bucks...
Position is filled!
I found some matchbooks from the old Crystal Terrace. Can anyone tell me anything or give me a value? They are in unused perfect condition.

This group is really focused on organizing a positive and upbeat event. Why do they look so upset?
Here’s another angle.
Oh, all right. It’s that weird-looking wetlands restoration structure that’s been in the harbor for the last two years.
He’s into heavy metal.
Cute little fella. Looks like he’d rock harder than any local.
He might be under the bridge next week, but not in this case.
Is the kid under the lift bridge? The grate above his head looks like the “road” surface that makes that cool zhhrooossh-ing noise when you drive over it.
Good guess, but this is not remnants or ruins. It is part of something contemporary that I would guess 99 percent of Duluthians have seen.
Close! Old skating rinks at Lester, near Lester Amity chalet. I don’t have a great shot of the whole thing, but it’s pretty neat. Check it out if you get a chance. We didn’t build it, but it was a fun place to play.
Also go to the chalet on the ...
Somewhere near the play area at Lester Park?
The decking and the steel breakwall make me think harbor side of the Aerial Lift Bridge, like it’s an old deck section cast aside.
I also worked for Fashion Wagon in the 1960s. No one mentioned that Fashion Wagon marketed or advertised their product with free give away of clothing on the Queen for a Day game show.
Geographically fairly close by, but not on Brighton Beach.
A guess from Christian Anders Olsen on Facebook: Brighton Beach?
it is the view through a structure, but not a bus shelter. Amazingly warm to lay down in this structure while the kiddos played nearby.
It looks a little like the view through a bus shelter skylight.
This sounds like the STARS tests being cruelly assigned to children in public schools in an effort to destroy them. In essence, the questions cover material not yet taught in the classroom ostensibly to use as a base metric to measure against futu...
From inside the mouth of the Abominable Snowman?
Just to clarify (and to reveal an answer to the quiz), Boreal will be a coffeeshop / juice and smoothie bar / Paleo bakery (little-to-no gluten and no refined sugar) / all-day cafe.
While the establishment will certainly serve raw and vegan items ...
Whether you like Helmut or not, the fact remains that he is a better writer than 90% of the folks on this site, including myself.
We live in Los Alamos an hour from Taos. Look us up if you need anything. We are moving to Duluth in June and would love to help a Duluthian if necessary.
