Lyceum Theatre Posts

West Superior Street, Spalding Hotel, Lyceum Theatre circa 1904

This photo from Detroit Publishing Company shows Downtown Duluth at Superior Street and Fifth Avenue West circa 1904. At right is the Spalding Hotel, at left the Lyceum Theatre.

Due to the clarity of this particular image, it’s possible to zoom in for some pretty clear closeups, as illustrated below.

Postcard from Lyceum Theatre and Spalding Hotel

It’s not known who scrawled a date on this postcard, when it was scrawled, or what the date is supposed to represent. But the date is one century ago today — Oct. 5, 1919.

It could represent the date the photo was shot, but that seems unlikely. The date was probably written by someone who bought the postcard and wanted to remember the date of a visit to that spot.
