Duluth Central High School in a Vintage Post Card Friendship Friday

Today's vintage post card is of Duluth Central High School , Duluth Minnesota. This is where I graduated from high school.
Sadly they have closed this beautiful old high school and using it for other uses. They built new Central. Besides Central we had East and Denfeld High Schools plus Marshall a private high school. Soon changes are coming again and eventually we will have only two high schools.
Wonderful memories of a long time ago. Sometimes progress is hard to understand and agree with.
post card is postmarked July 17, 1912 from L Lewis to Miss Florence Swanson of Stillwater Minnesota. The following is written
1931 e 5th street Duluth I planned to write you a couple weeks ago but
had another sudden attack of appendicitis. Was operated on 2
weeks ago yesterday and had it out.
The brought me home from the hospital Saturday. Am getting
along nicely and begin to feel better
already. Am still pretty weak but can eat and that helps. Expect
to be out again in 10 days or so. Wont come to St Paul now til on my way west in August
Will write later L Lewis
So sad these vintage postcards get separated from family members. Great information tells us where people lived during a period of time and heath issue with L. Lewis.
Thanks for stopping by.. come back to see more wonderful vintage postcards from my personal collection and those I resell on eBay or in an antique mall. Grace

Vintage Lake Superior Duluth Minnesota Canal 1907 Postcard addressed to Lyman Barrows

Look what I found this week end at the flea market in Minnesota. It is a pretty vintage postcard of the Canal Entrance of Duluth Minnesota. Lake Superior is huge and beautiful.
Post card is postmarked June 1907 and addressed to
Master Lyman Barrows
12 19th Ave East
Duluth Minn
Written on the front is

Dear Lyman
We were glad to get your postal from California but sorry to hear that you had returned home ill. We hope that you will soon be well again and all send our love. Mary W Carter.

My plan is to put up for sale in the Antique Mall I just joined. The mall is just a couple of blocks from the Canal and gets lots of tourists.
Post card is in good condition but does have some small creases on the corners.
I took a few minutes and searched for Lyman on and believe I found him in the 1910 census. He was living in Ward 1 of Duluth, Minnesota. Was the son of Frank J and Eulalie. In 1910 he was 14 years old and had a sister Margaret 18 and brother Kenneth 16 years old. He was born in Michigan and was found in the Michigan census in 1900. After 1910 I am not sure where he went.
Thanks for stopping by.. Hope that you visit again and please check out my other blogs. Grace
