Postcard Friday # 1 Lighthouse at Entrance of Duluth Minnesota

Today I am sharing this beautiful postcard from Duluth and its Lighthouse for my first Friendship Friday.
Duluth is where I spent most of my life. I arrived at 5 years and moved to the big city of St. Paul at age of 42. I still consider Duluth my home and will go back someday.
This post card is not as old as some of mine but is so beautiful. Printed by Zenith Interstate News Co. Duluth, Minn and is unused.
Through this narrow canal, entrance to the Duluth Superior Harbor, annually passes more freight tonnage than is handled by any other American port excepting that of New York City. Iron ore from the great iron ranges lying to the north of Duluth, wheat from the northwest, meat , butter , eggs and other dairy products, form an important part of this commerce.
Thank you for visiting... Grace

  8. It seems strange that a land locked waterway could have more annual freight tonnage pass through it than any other except New York harbor. I learn something new every day.
