Comments for Perfect Duluth Day
Hi Derek -- I did not mean to omit that one; I failed to include most media photos in general for no particular reason, so thank you!
I’ll add one to the mix.
Is this the old hotel that was once owned by Brad Patullo’s mom?
Have you tried the ‘ol two fingered man-tap on the boys greeting? Followed by harsh language? If that doesn’t work graduate to one of those light spring action Red Ryder BB guns or some homemade pepper spray. Hit em on the way out. Pavlov will beg...
Really cool to see the history of restaurants and bars in Superior. Wish I could take a trip back in time and see the main drags of Superior.

I think LSA needs to get in touch with the mayor of Two Harbors.
Originally this blog post was titled “That Part of Morgan Park that No Longer Exists,” but it’s been changed to “Old Morgan Park Apartment Houses,” after some follow-up back-and-forth with Ina by email led to the sense that Ina’s childhood home st...
Grandparents Julius and Mary Bonello owned and operated JB Grocery at 2555 London Road (now Black Woods Grill and Bar) in the 1950s and ’60s. It was a Fairway Store. But Grandpa Bonello had a fruit stand in front. I understand he was known for wat...
The Duluth Boat Club still exists as an umbrella organization for a number of water related clubs. The Duluth Boat Club’s mission is to enhance water front access for all. They are working to try to recreate this postcard with some new i...
I was looking at this thrown in with a box of dildos, a used one hitter, Best of Slim Whitman, Montana Slim and a broken mini bong. I wouldn’t get my money back at the flea market at the fair in Barnum.
Stop in at the Duluth Public Main Library’s reference desk! We might be able to help. In the meantime, here is a link to some resources.
The top advice on PDD’s Facebook thread on this subject is to visit Duluth City Hall, where the building permit office has microfiche files listed by address that include permits for wiring, plumbing, additions, and sometimes the house’s original ...
A few years ago, I was able to find the original permit filing for my house at city hall in the permit office; this included the floor plans. My house was built in the 1930s, so perhaps there’s hope for yours?
That sucks. I had hopes that Earth Rider Brewery would have been the catalyst for a craft district on that end of town. Those buildings were begging for redevelopment. Superior’s answer to Lincoln Park.
That’s fucking great. God dammit. The two best looking buildings in that whole area. Son of a bitch that pisses me off.
I attended Emerson from 1964 to 1970 or thereabouts, where the trees are in the photo was a tall slide. It must have been six or seven feet tall. In the winter some of the boys would wear our dress shoes with hard soles to school and we’d go down ...
I think I moved in there around December 1982. It may have closed in 1979.
What a great company to work for! The tree business evolved into the Bombardier tractor line and eventually Ski Doo snowmobiles. The tree division was kept separate and they formed Halvorson Equipment, Inc. They became the largest snowmobile distr...
Forgot to include Blue Rock Grill …
Lots of great whiskey!
Whoa, this has to be the first big snub of the award season with Anna T’s “Crime” not getting a nod here!
I don’t think that’s the existing Sacred Heart steeple -- there’s no cross on the top and the base looks different. Maybe it’s the early Sacred Heart church building that burned in 1892? (Image by Jan Stewart)

I am interested in answering your questions. Can you provide me you email so I can contact you directly?
The internet would have us believe that Hugh Beaumont, aka Ward Cleaver, retired to a Christmas tree farm near Grand Rapids.
It is so cool to see these buildings with restored windows. The Enger building is so beautiful with them back. I wonder what happened to the fake display house that was located on the 3rd (2nd?) floor?
He is featured prominently in WDSE’s Iron Opera documentary that recently aired. That kid’s gonna be big.
If I currently lived in Hawaii, how fondly would I remember Duluth? I guess I’ll never know.
“That place would make me happy too.”
THAT IS AWESOME. I will look for more information!
Your project jarred my memory. I don’t know if this obscure tidbit is of interest to anyone, but back when KUMD was WDTH, there was a poetry program put together by a couple of guys from Superior called The Inner Ear. UMD has some PDFs as part of ...
Washington will help clean up this mess.
