Comment on Lake Superior Wants to Kill You by Paul Lundgren

Exactly one week after this essay was published my wife and I went paddle boarding on the St. Louis River. The water was perfectly calm. It was the safest conditions I could image.

About 15 minutes into the expedition a wind came suddenly raging f...

Comment on Lake Superior Wants to Kill You by andrew tessier

Nice post Mr. Lundgren. I remember many crazy ‘herd’ days leaping into the lake off lighthouses, other weird and stupid locations, a few scary moments, thankfully none dire but all were ridiculous. When I think of my wee ones repeating the same sh...

Comment on Will they take the “Duluth” out of the Duluth Harbor South Breakwater Outer Light? by Paul Lundgren

Update: A spokesperson with the U.S. General Services Administration has told the Duluth News Tribune that “If the lighthouse is transferred to a new owner, it will remain in its current location, as it will still be an active aid to navigation.”

Comment on Mystery Photo #70: East Superior Street in 1908 by Paul Lundgren

The copyright date is clearly 1908 when zoomed in, but that doesn’t verify for certain the photo was shot that year. 070607 is the cataloging number used for the image by Detroit Publishing Co.

Comment on Mystery Photo #70: East Superior Street in 1908 by Karasu

The date stamp looks more like 1906 to me, though the resolution isn’t really there to say for sure. Of course “070607” could also be the date.

Comment on Mystery Photo #70: East Superior Street in 1908 by Matthijs

That makes sense. And I think it’s also possible to make a reasonable conclusion about when and why the photo was taken. According to a report commissioned by the Duluth Heritage Preservation Commission, Superior Street was paved between 16th and ...

Comment on Ursa Minor Brewing plans summer opening in Duluth by PGleason

Hey Guys, looking at your beer photos on your web page; your beers seldom exhibit a head? I like a strong head, one that follows the beer to the bottom of the glass as you drink it. For me, your beer appears to be crafted flatter than I like….....

Comment on Mystery Photo #70: East Superior Street in 1908 by hbh1

The Bunnells owned that property before the “new” Bunnell house was built. Without doing a more thorough search for various biographical details, it seems to me that the elder Bunnell died around the turn of the century and that the younger Bunnel...

Comment on Mystery Photo #70: East Superior Street in 1908 by Matthijs

I think Don found another mystery in the mystery photo. Everyone seems in agreement that the house on the end of the block is the Crosby House. As HBH noted, the avenue is hidden by the hill and can be seen more clearly in this photo from around t...

Comment on Mystery Photo #70: East Superior Street in 1908 by hbh1

I recognized that house immediately as well. I think the avenue is visible, as you can see the equivalent of a curb cut across the street. It’s just that 21st Ave E was not the major and wide thoroughfare then that is is now. I mean, 21st is a maj...

Comment on Mystery Photo #70: East Superior Street in 1908 by Don Kozlovski

Second home on left appears to be same as upper west corner of 21st E… but no avenue visible here? Built in 1904. First home on left not same as current, but that was built in 1908.

Comment on Lake Superior Wants to Kill You by vicarious

When I describe what it’s like to surf on Lake Superior, I tell people it’s “heavy water,” and that really does describe it.

I thought I’d taken my last breath at Stoney Point once when my leash broke after I nose-dove in front of a too-big wave.
