Carmody Irish Pub is a popular meeting place at 308 E. Superior Street. Tonight they featured Joseph Gomer, a Tuskegee Airman with the first in a series known as History in a Pint, which is sponsored by the Veteran’s Memorial Hall. (The Tuskegee Airmen were America’s first black military airmen.) The men walking on the street are just coming out of the pub and are Veteran’s for Peace.
According to the Carmody website the pub is in a building which served as the livery stable for the block. This section of town is know as the Port-town district. The pub has a nautical and Irish theme. You can see the ships coming in from their back windows.

This building on the 300 block in the alley between East First Street and East Second Street. It is behind the alley of the First PresbyterianÂ The old stones are very interesting.Â I have heard tell that it is one of the oldest buildings still standing in Duluth and that at one time it was a jail.Â I am sure it is one of the oldest buildings, but I don’t know if it is true that it was a jail.
This sign marks Seven Bridges Road which is actually across the street. This street is Superior Street and a bridge over the Lester River.Â Seven Bridges Road is a beautiful road. According to Mark Ryan in his website “Duluth Minnesota’s Seven Bridge Road: Samuel Snively and the Building of a Northern Minnesota Seven Bridges Road is one of the more beautiful parkways in Duluth Winding its way through forests of pine and birch, the lower portion of the road intertwines with Amity creek, the western branch of the Lester River, as the waterway descends toward Lake Superior.Â Â Along the way, the parkway crosses several beautifully crafted stone-arch bridges, all similar in design and construction.

As you can see, snow was flurrying around today.

Today when I went out shortly after 5 p.m. I was struck by the fact that is was still light outside. The days are getting longer in Duluth. This photo was taken a 5:10 p.m. Just a couple months ago it was dark at 4:30 p.m.Â It was actually lighter than this photo looks.
