Seaman’s Yesterday’s Treasures

Last Friday I had to take my computer into CW Technologies, which is why you haven’t seen a new Duluth Daily Photo every day for the past week. Seaman’s Yesterday’s Treasures is across the street from them. It’s in West Duluth on Grand Avenue. I like the rocking chair with the sign split into it.

Red Star

Many homes, barns and sheds in this area have a red or a white star on them. I’ve heard it is the Finnish influence.

Unique Building

Does anyone know the story on this old building? The green dome on the right is the top of the Old Carnegie Library.

Is it a ship or a library?

The downtown Duluth Library is built to look like a ship. I think it is kinda ugly, but it’s kinda cool, it really does look like a big ol ship resting downtown.  This  building opened at 520 W. Superior St. Noted architect Gunnar Birkerts designed the building.

Grey, windy day

Sorry, I didn’t get anything exciting today. You can see why I really didn’t want to hang around outside by looking at this photo.

A very high street

In the background is the Antenna Farm. This neighborhood is a “newer” development than many of Duluth’s old turn of the century homes. Many of these homes were built in the 1960’s-70’s.
