Lost Duluth: Landmarks, Industries, Buildings, Homes and the Neighborhoods in Which They Stood
Discover what Duluth has lost. Through over 400 photographs and sketches of vanished homes, buildings, landmarks, industries, and residential neighborhoods, Lost Duluth takes readers on a journey through the city’s past, introducing them to the people―from hard-scrabble pioneers to wealthy industrialists to impoverished immigrant laborers―whose ambitions and dreams built the Zenith City on a swamp and a rocky hillside at the head of the Great Lakes. A finalist for the Minnesota Book Award.
“Duluth has always been a city like none other in the Midwest, with an architectural history as distinctive as its steep hills, rushing creeks and lakeside vistas. Lost Duluth offers a beautifully illustrated look at some of the city’s most prominent vanished buildings, from grand Victorian mansions and row houses to monumental works of public and commercial architecture. This book will make you pine for the city of old while opening your eyes to unimagined wonders, and even life-long residents will be surprised to find how much has been lost on the destructive road to progress.”
